What are you using to lube air tools?

Is it ok to use synthetic compressor oil to lube air tools or is something else needed?
Thanks,
Steve

I've been using Kobalt air tool oil from Lowes, seems to be doing good, anything is better than no oil at all i think it was about 6 bucks for the bottle

Oil that prevents gum deposits such as ATF should work also.

1931 Steve, down by Coldwater. I have a small bottle of oil that came with the tools I bought but it isn't labeled so wanted to get some more for when it runs out.

I use Snap-on air tool oil at home and work. Pretty good stuff. The Aerokroil product has got to be good. I didn't know they made air tool oil. We use the penetrating Aerokroil at work it is amazing stuff.

I use Snap on air tool oil at home and work, Stihl bar lube and 2 stroke oil (made by castrol) in the chain saw and Quicksilver oil in the Mercury outboard - genuine is often cheaper in the long run. It only took me 45 years to figure this out.
