One explanation for your cheapie HF tools failing is they are cheapie HF 
tools.  Meticulously hand crafted from the finest Chinese dung-forged steel.

Back when I was renting a 30 x 30 foot shop to work on various Triumph 
projects, I had a big filter first in line from the compressor output.  
It put out about 175 psi at full chat.  The filter was followed by a tee 
with the leg basically unused, the run went to a regulator set to 120 
psi.  That was enough for most tools.  If something needed more I'd plug 
it into the tee before the regulator to get the max available pressure 
to it.
