    I let the compressor warm up before pressurizing it. When I shut it off I open the bleed screw before turning the compressor off. Is this necessary?

    I run mine for a min before putting load on and yes never shut it off under load,  mine is just a cheap yong Heng but has worked flawlessly for 1.5 years,  I’m gonna catch hell for this next statement but here is my experience. I’ve never nor will I used “royal purple” I know everyone says use it. But there is no need. I always have used compressor oil from Napa auto, I get it here $9 quart just be sure to change it regularly “if it’s dirty clean it”  if you want I will post a pic of the bottle for ya when I get home. Don’t fall for the high priced hyped out “royal purple” stuff

    Actually they recommend (ISO 100) which is straight weight 30 non detergent motor oil. I used it in my Y/H for close to 2 years without a problem. Like Vinny said if it looks dirty change it.

      I am kind of cheap too, but my nose works. I originally used the 46 weight hydraulic oil they said to use, but it stunk up my place so bad I switched to RP and now it barely smells at all after filling all my tanks. It was worth it for me. Yeah, if I were filling in a garage or basement I would definately go the cheap route though.

    it's just done to blow out any moisture left in the compressor, otherwise it would only blow out moisture from the hose, good practice to keep the compressor from rusting and corroding.

    Is there a 1 way valve on the hose or airgun?
