Sanden OBA Oiler?

Ok I am just buttoning up my OBA system with the sanden but noticed something. I am currently using a Craftsman in-line tool oiler on the intake side of my sanden and I don't think its feeding right? The compressor got pretty hot after running it for about 4-5minutes. Is that normal? It seemed to have used very little oil also. Is that normal too? I am using Ignersoll Rand All season synthetic compressor oil if that matters. Also should I be able to run the sanden on pretty heavy duty cycles or no? If anyone thats knows of sanden OBA or has one and could shed some light on my questions that would be awesome.


This is the exact oiler I have on the Intake side of my sanden http://www.sears.com/sr/javasr/produ...seBVCookie=Yes
Is there a better one than this?

i used a drip feed oiler meant for a compressor for mine. got it at Lowes for like 10 bucks. when the compressor is running you should see oil flowing through the lubricator, if you don't see oil flowing in, it aint working right. you have it hooked up on the air in line to the compressor right?

I started off using one like the one you are using. It did not work right for me either. Now I am using this one. http://www.harborfreight.com/cpi/cta...emnumber=42035 You can split them up and use the oiler to oil the compresser and the dryer to take it out.

you can split these? THey have a few different version at HF right now, but they were useless to me without splitting. Looks like I'm going back there again, even though I already did my weekly stroll.

Yes you can split them. The only problem I have had is the regulater/dryer where the knob is to adjust leaked I used some teflon tape and tighten down. It seems to work alright now.

I thought he was referring to the factory assembled part where the regulator adjustment knob is.

i've used one of these for many years with no issues. very clean and no mess. as for lubing my sanden, i annually unscrew the top bolt and just squirt in a few inches of grease.

simple.


good luck
