I thought about making one in the past. Then I found the one from Motive Products that came with a bunch of adapters to do all my vehicles in one kit. Toyota-Saturn-Jeep-Dodge Ram. So I bought that. I would have had to make them out of junk yard master cylinder covers and a lot of fittings. I wish I remembered the kit number. Coming with the universal round (for Toyota) and universal rectangle (Dodge Ram and CJ7) was worth the extra bucks.

it's save me a lot of *****ing trying to get my wife to help. And she don't want to be there and isn't paying attention.

With my method of brake bleeding by opening the bleeder before pushing the brake pedal I have a 2x4 cut to length that I use to push the pedal down and then wedge it into the seat till I close the bleeder screw.

I bought the cheaper motive bleeder from my work (with my discount it was 78 bucks) amazon has the same model for 78 also with out a discount. But it did seem to work good, definitely slow but it did get the job done better than trying to bleed it alone w/ a 2x4. Lol
