Yes, this is a great idea. I have a little one that Sears used to
sell, and I have a bigger unit that has dryer, oiler, regulator
and a couple of ball valves and fittings such that I can
get dry air, or dry oiled air; this gets moved close to where
I'm working, at the end of a moderate length hose, and then
another hose goes into it.
I use different fittings (and hoses) for oiled air and non-oiled air.
Tiptools sells the flex line for the compressor end, if you
can't find it elsewhere.
You might consider putting a big drier right there after the
flex line, too.
If you're in a humid environment, you can help dry your air
by making an impromptu air cooler at the compressor end by
splicing in a 50' length of air hose. Stick it in a bucket
of cold water. This will condense out most of the moisture
before it hits the pipe, which means your drier has a better
chance of removing it.
