Northern Industrial Tools Air Filter, Lubricator, and Regulator - 1/2in. Fitting
Own it for a few months before you rate it
This is annoying junk. Could tell the regulator was hosed from the start. Don't bother buying this or you'll be shopping for a new one soon.

It dosent work.
This air filter/regulator is by for the worst thing I,ve ever purchoused.You cain,t control the oil flow at all.It says to turn the screw on top and I did both ways and still to much oil.I WILL NOT EVER PURCHASE a Norther Tool Brand of any kind.I bought a Inger soll rand air compressor and I will get a inger soll rand filter/regulator this time.

We got three of these for our plant as an experiment. Within a month they were in the trash.
We could not keep the oilers consistent. Either they would loose all of their oil in 30 minutes or not enough oil, regardless of our attempts to adjust them.
All three of the pressure regulators/gauges became inaccurate after one months use. All of them died at the same time. It really killed us for troubleshooting. Two pieces of equipment were running sluggish, while the other was blowing seals daily. Meanwhile the gauges were reading the proper pressure... Once we finally figured out it was the pressure regulators & guages, we had lost a lot of time. Too much time...
I didn't totally downgrade it to one star, because we are industrial. These might work in a garage, but i wouldn't waste my $$ to find out.

One time use???
It works and can get the job done but don't think it will last very long if you use it everyday or even every week. Used for about a week then replaced it. I would suggest save your money and get something that will last.

NI Air Filter, Lub, and Reg 0.5 inch fitting
Easy assembly, well painted surfaces, gaskets were small and fragile.

I thought I would save a few bucks and buy this less expensive air filter and regulator... Big mistake... Filter drain is made of plastic and I could never get it to close off all the way... Air would leak out and my compressor would have to cycle on more often to maintain air pressure on my system... Spend the extra money and get a Milton or IR filter and regulator!!!
