Friend, that suggests that your Bostitch air compressor may have significant leakage of air past the piston seals.

A little air migrating past the seals into the oil sump can be vented easily. A lot of air can sometimes blow oil, if the sump is really full or over full, up the oil fill pipe and spray out the oil fill cap vents.
