I just got a craftsman air compressor and it came with some tools. I hooked up the ratchet and it worked for a minute or so and now it won't work. It just shoots the air out by the handle. I put some oil down in it and it just sprays it out. Is the ratchet bad or did I do something wrong?

It is busted from the factory - Craftsmutt strike again - hand tools, sockets and hand wrenches are guarnateed forever - I'm not sure about air wrenches, however....Since you just bought it they should replace it, however.....
Hit the top of it on the ground and it will loosen it up. Sometimes there is a part in the middle that goes back and forth that can get stuck. Hit on the concrete a couple times and it will loosen up... I have had it happen to me a couple times.
