    Default Air Tools.....whats the score?

    So i'm looking at some air tools, any pointers? Machine Mart near me seam to have a good range and the prices seam cheap TBH, I always expected air tools to be expensive but that doesn't seam to be the case.

    Make sure you have a decent compressor and tank.

    and invest in a water separtor/oiler to keep the tools in good condition.

    Another pointer....don't use wd40 to oil air tools

    I was about to suggest Aldi... saw the advert the other day, thinking about picking up a compressor and couple of tools myself.

    I got a jump-starter/compressor from Aldi the other day for £35. Seems fine! 3 year warranty too!

    We already have a huge tank and the compressor has been running for the last 10 years, there ex industrial. Luckily the farther in law has a pit garage, and everything else I could ever wish for but no air tools.

    It's a penetrating oil. Fair enough if the tool has seized it's fine to use it to free the tool off but it won't give the insides any protection

    3 in 1 oil or hydraulic oil are perfect for the job

    As a pointer buy the best you can get as the cheap one don't have the guts in them to undo bolts the one air gun I got will cost you over £900 I took it to work as the air gun I was using could not undo a carrier bolt on a lorry brake and it got it off no problem
