Now that didn't take long!
From my favorite tool source...and NO I don't work there or own the place, just a satisfied customer giving them their props.

|sharpe427||They also sell little add on reservoirs to add oil at the tool. I will try to find a link and post a pic. I used these at an old shop that had serious water issues. Nowadays, I use the system oiler with a manifold before the oiler for paint hook up and I use some really bright, ugly neon colored hoses for painting.|

O.K. kinda what i thought, the adds for the filter/mist system make it sound like the do-all-filter-system...I guess they figure no body paints there own stuff anymore. I have always added air-tool oil manually, it gets to be a hassle though, and my old sears AC barely kept up to the HF die grinder. It was that cheap ($280) oil less 5HP (supposeablly) 30Gal. unit. It's going to the consignment auction next week. and i won't miss it.........

All you need to do religiously is add a drop or two of air tool oil or Mystery Oil(usually what I use) to a tool each day before and after use rather then contaminate your entire system with oil. My air tools are many years old with never a failure - even my cheapie HF angle air grinder. If you want to spray paint, you will have an entire system from compressor to gun that can potentially ruin several hundreds of dollars of paint real quick with an oil mist system. The only drawback to adding the oil directly to the tool is if I add too much oil then I can end up with a messy tool or two - but a lot better then a $600 gallon of paint.

You need a completely sepearate air supply from before the oil mister.
Once fittings and hoses are misted with oil, they can't be used for painting.

Another AC question about filters
Now that i have a bigger and much better AC, I'm looking at filtering sys. I notice some remove water/crud and add a oil mist for air tools, that's fine but what about painting, I don't think the paint gun would like a oil mist while painting. How do they work, or does one just shut the oil mister off....
