Anyone know where I can buy ones of those pumping pressure brake bleeders locally? Or if it's not horribly expensive, one that hooks up to an air compressor (with a regulator).

I'd like to rebleed my clutch soon, and the only real time I can work on my car is during the day (when my friends are at work/school), so doing it the traditional pedal pumping way won't work.

Something like this.

Nothing local. I bought one via Bimmerworld last year, and had it shipped up.

Canadian marketplace is sorely lacking in stuff like that.

I was actually thinking of making one with an old air pressure regulator, a couple fittings and a spare resevoir cap....

Because I don't work on only my own car, I work on a few. I like having my own tools, and I don't like paying for what I can do myself.
