I have an pneumatic impact wrench and it has a "oil" plug that can unscrew to oil the gun. Does anybody know what type of oil and how much of it I must use to oil my wrench properly ?

Thanks !

You oil them daily if you dont have an inline oiler and you use air tool oil. if you cant find that you can use transmission fluid.

I looked at your pic that plug is not for the oil, you put the oil in the air supply inlet and you use about 8 drops for normal use.

That picture was just for reference to show what I was talking about ! :blush:
No, I do not have an inline automatic oiler but I do intend on getting one. Do you know of a good place I could get one ? Also, what would be the best oil ?

Thanks !

What type of oil should I use ? I would read my owner's manual for this but unfortunately I do not have it anymore and the Campbell Hausfeld site doesn't hold the corresponding PDF manual for my compressor or impact wrench. Is there a specific oil I must use ? I don't have any transmission oil on hand so I matters well get the real oil that is needed.

I read that I must put between 5-10 drops of oil in the air inlet before each use if I don't have an inline oiler, is this true or false ?

Thanks for any advice !

Holy crap man, they've said Air Tool Oil many times already.

And yes oil it. I never oiled it that much, but that would be a good start.
