    Vac bleeders, recommendations?

    I'm looking to buy a decent vacuum set for brake and clutch bleeding. Anyone have any recommendations on a pretty decent, but not insanely priced tool?

    I use a Mity-Vac. They sell them at general auto stores like autozone for around 30 dollars. Its pretty handy to have around.

    I have the plastic Mity-Vac and have used it for years now without any problems. Recently bled the entire brake system on our Trans Am and Monte Carlo and my friends borrow it all the time to work on their cars.

    Three votes in, good for me! Those seem to be the general standard everywhere I look for home use. I've seen some brands/models getting WAY up there ($300+) and really wanted to be sure the Mity-Vacs wouldn't be a "get a few uses out of them before they crapped out" type product.

    Thanks!

    Any brake vacuum bleeder will work just fine, so long as it has as fluid receptacle before the pump. I've had my Mity-Vac for 15 years now, and it works just like new.
