Overall, others give this:
Before I ever bought my first air tool, experienced friends had explained the importance of keeping the tools properly lubricated. So when I bought my first impact wrench, I immediately bought an air tool oiler from Sears. I attached the oiler to the wrench, then added a quick-connet fitting to the other end. Aside from occasionally replenishing the oiler's reservoir, the wrench was always ready for immediate use. This oiler was purchased to replace the original one, which served me well for several years until one of the seals began leaking and I was not able to find an appropriately-sized O-ring to replace it. This oiler appears to be a similar design, although I hope the O-rings are easier to replace. The only other drawback is that the small size of the reservoir opening makes it difficult to fill the oiler without making a mess. (I recommend using a hypodermic syringe.)

I don't worry about 'if' the air tool is oiled any more. The tools are working great and it is one less concern about keeping my air tools running great. Don 't waste another thought about getting this peace of mind tool. Keep your tools running at top shape and working when you need them.
The plastic around the input opening oracked after approx 6 months. For 9 dollars it should have lasted longer. Needes to be made of a higher grade of plastic or thicker.
I unpacked this oiler. Installed it on my impact wrench. Spent five minutes filling it with oil. What a joke that was. Then when I hooked up my air hose, I watched as my new oiler blew oil all over the ground. No crack. It was leaking at the air inlet side where the brass meets the plastic. Design flaw?
This oiler is similar in construction to almost any other in-line oiler you will find, it is the nature of the way they are made. I found that when I was finished using the tool for the night, if I disconnect the tool/oiler from the air supply and loosen the fill screw to let out the pressure, this will keep it from emptying itself into the hose/air tool it is connected to. Like other reviewers noted, it can be difficult to fill, you will need a bottle with a small diameter protruding spout to put inside the fill hole (like the small Craftsman air tool oil bottle). I use it with an air rachet and it works fine for me. Not too much oil, not too little.
Pros - Easily mounted to each tool or in a line - Only one needs to be bought if installed on a short line connecting the main line to the tool. Cons - Plastic so it is breakable by accidental dropping or over tightening - Can be messy when filling with oil as air bubbles may form preventing the oil from entering the chamber.
