Air compressors - filter question
When I went for the first time to Princess Auto (a Canadian institution) I had a bit of a field day, and bought some air accessories, including a filter. I have a cheapie oilless baby compressor and a finishing nailer and stapler, and I've reasoned if the air (esp from a cheap compressor) is a bit dirty, it's going to wear the tools more. I am careful to oil them, but figured I'd throw this filter on the setup more or less for fun. Not sure how long a filter is good for, and whether it should go on the compressor end, or the tool end, or not at all. Thoughts?
