Air brush compressor question

Recommended Posts

 

I have an old Super Quiet 20 compressor that has to have oil for the compressor. I have no idea what sort of oil to get for it.

It doesn't need oil now but it certainly will in the future. What sort of compressor oil should I be looking at?

I've been contemplating power steering oil as I believe it is hydraulic oil but I could be wrong.

Whatever brand of oil the unit originally called for and where to get it has been lost in the mists of time.

Thanks Andy. I checked the site and was surprised to see they  are still in business. Contacted them about the oil question and am waiting for their response.

Got a reply yesterday. The oil costs US$24.50 for 24 oz. It's a special oil, other kinds can ruin the O rings and get into the pressurized air (at least that is what the owners manual says). Thank God I don't need any now. The manual calls for one year intervals for oil change but I have never used it enough to warrant an oil change.

Interestingly the compressor has a date of manufacturing as 1986 and that is when I bought it. d2Jdv5D.gif
