Seperate hose for air tools and paint gun?

Do I need to have a seperate hose for my air tools and my paint gun? I use an inline filter/regulator/oiler for the air tools. It seems logical that this setup shouldn't be used for painting, but the instructions that came with my paint gun show that the regualtor/oiler should be hooked up in series with the paint gun.

Yes, a different hose is good. In my shop all air tool hoses and outlets are one type fitting, with lubricator. All spray guns and filtered air outlets use a different style fitting. That way accidents are avoided.

An oiler should not be used in an air supply to a spray gun. That can cause all sorts of paint problems.

[color=aqua]and the hose used for regular air tools will have some residual crap in it that WILL come out and ruin a nice finish. get a new hose and only use it for your paint gun. and do make sure it is NOT downstream from an oiler.[/color]
