Running pneumatic tools like an air wrench, grinder, or impact gun at your shop? Then you should be lubing them regularly to ensure a long service life. That’s because compressed air contains moisture, which if left unchecked, can gradually rust and corrode an air tool from the inside out. (If you’ve ever had an air tool magically seize after prolonged storage, that’s probably why.)

The air tool aces over at AIRCAT made this quick, one-minute video that’ll show you exactly how to lubricate your air tools. Better still, you’ll learn how often you should oil them—spoiler alert, it varies depending on the type of pneumatic tool.

Finally, find out exactly what type of oil you should use to keep your air tools running smoothly.
