    Suction loading tool - GIF

    Suction loading tool. Not necessarily heavy stuff, but delicate.

    5 dozen eggs may be a tad more than I would need for my morning omelet.
    Retrieving those bulky boxes without the assistance of the suction lifting device then stacking them for an 8 hour shift would be eventual murder on your back and joints even if they are not heavy. The constant bending over and grasping large though probably relatively lightweight objects is one thing that keeps chiropractors in business
    Never try to tell me it can't be done

    Any plans for cheap vacume pumps? Looking for something to help with "One Man Bleeding Brakes" machine.

    Tried a few of the off the shelf brake bleeding kits, but with a duel master cylinder set up like we run in our race cars they just simply do not work. Once the one system is bled it works against the other. Always end up needing 3 people to do it. One pumping,one on the front system and one on the rear. anddo not get your wife involved you inevitably end up eating take aways for the next week and costing you a bottle of perfume before you get a home cooked plate of food

    I have one of those pistol vacuum bleeders that works so-so on some systems. for bleeding the brakes on say a 3 axle trailer it works great. I just start at the farthest eel cylinder away from the master cylinder then work my way forward. One tip though is I found it helps to completely remove the bleed valve then coat it in bearing grease then screw it most of the way in the grease helps to pull a cleaner vacuum.
    On cars with drum rear and disk front with the older pop out proportioning valve I've never had any problems bleeding those brakes. newer vehicles with ABS I have used a "T" and connected both rear bleeders at the same time cars old enough to have single master cylinders I just open all 4 bleeders and attach a hose at each one and let them drain into a bottle for several minutes to half an hour letting gravity do the job, keeping the master cylinder full. My preferred method is to use a positive pressure bleeder strapped to the fill hole/s' of the master and at the same time use a pistol vacuum when necessary.
    New vehicles with 4 wheel anti lock disk and those with electronic automatic braking are just about impossible for an individual to properly bleed 1 valve at a time.
    This is similar to my pistol unit

    I think mine is an Ammco and I need a new bladder for mine that is if I still have it

    Look at that bucket of protein and vitamins the other bucket looks to be just enough to make a batch of Meringue for lemon pies.
