Hello George Marsh,

Chain saw oil is designed to be a bit stringie I think, just like open chain oil. I have never use it. I do always use clean oil. 30W is the norm, but 20 or 10W will do anytime. The last few (10) years i have had the opporunity to cut many cords of wood. I vote for 20W or less. I had 10 cords to cut this year. I ran out of 30W I was using, and had some ATF. So that is what I put in the saw. It was cheap when I bought it, and wao !It works fine. The chain and bar are wet when I get done with a cut, it stays sharp, so plenty of oil is going there. For the air compressor, I would invest on a syythetic oil. Those things work pretty hard, so the synthetic is the way to go. Guido.

Guido,
From what I've read, I should use a straight weight non-detergent in the air compressor because detergent oil will foam when it comes in contact with moisture. So, won't synthetic oil foam too? My compressor has a sight glass for the oil, so I guess I could see if the oil foams. I drained the oil and it was thick and dark looking. Also, for the first time, the 30a 220v breaker was tripped, so I'm definately going to put thinner oil in it for the winter.

Is there a special oil for air compressors? If so, where can I get it? Is it muli-weight?
George

Detergent oil foams when it is used in hydraulic systems, not when it comes in contact with moisture. I don"t see it foaming in a compressor.

Hello George Marsh,
Some manufacurers of air compressors like IR will double the warranty if you buy the synthetic oil start up kit. You could see what kind of synthetic they use. I use Mobil1 on everything. Just happen to be there in 1976 were the oil was beeing developed. Tested it without knoing what oil i was using.
I don't own any stock in ExxonMobil
We ran the diesel version for 100.000 miles in the pan before changing. No oil related engine break downs the whole fleet. Filters at proper intervals and make up oil, of course. No, it should not foam! GOOD STUFF FOR SURE!

Yes.

Use air compressor oil. Available at any good auto parts store and most farm stores, etc.

DO NOT use chain saw bar oil.

Dean
