    btw I was using an air ratchet recently and the guy I was helping (MY B.I.L.)
    asked me why I squirted some M.M.O. into the air tools quick connect air line connector before , and after each time I started to use it and before I put it back in the tool chest?
    I also lightly covered the external surface with WD40

    its really simple, compressor air tends to contain moisture sor allowing the air flow to force some M.M.O. over the internal surfaces and putting a bit more on the tools working moving parts, before you store the tool, tends to reduce rust and internal wear issues.

    most auto parts stores carry it, its a high detergent high quality oil that can be added to most automotive oils to increase the level of friction protection slightly,its been used for decades with good results, its designed to leave a film on the surface
