I'm making a DYI Bleed kit with the remnants of my old Avid Bleed kit from several years back. Basically the old kit has leaks and the tubes have turned white. I'm also in need of a second bleed kit for my Shimano brakes which use mineral oil. I was looking to put together a nice professional bleed kit on the cheap after seeing what Avid had to offer with thier $80 professional bleed kit I decided I could do better for cheaper.
Thus far I've picked up these syringes. They arrived today and I have to say they are much better than I had expected. The Luer lock fitting fits nicely with the Avid Bleed kit. They seem to be well made and even came with a spare O-Ring. I've looked into getting a hose at the local PetSmart. Looks like a line of tubing is about $4 (3/16")

I also found some luer fittings (3/16"):
Value Plastics FTLL007-2 Female Luer Thread Style to 500 Series Barb, 3/32" (2.4 mm) ID Tubing, Black Nylon (25-Pack): Amazon.com: Industrial & Scientific
And maybe pick up 2 of these hayes fittings as well:
Hayes Prime Bleed Fitting Kit | eBay
So all in total:
$20 for 2 syringes
$9 (25 pack) Luer lock barbs
$8 for fittings
Total: $41 for a solid long lasting bleed kit.
PS: I haven't bought all the parts yet so if anyone sees a problem with the setup please let me know. Thanks.
