Basically you need the following for the pressure version:
some sort of container to hold pressure and brake fluid.
tubing and connectors ( Tyre tube connectors work well).
an adapter plate/cap for the brake master cylinder/clutch cylinder.
4 a gauge capable of 0 ~ 20 psi is an option too, I'll be using a compressor with its own built in gauges.
You will need the following for the vacuum version:
I used a windscreen washer pressure bottle from an old VW beetle
a vacuum pump (old fridge motor )
a container to hold expelled brake fluid, prevents the vacuum pump from sucking up the old brake fluid.
tubing and connectors
, this has a max pressure rating of 35psi, more than adequate for our purposes.

does the complete range of power brake bleeders for those looking for ideas.
It can be seen that a garden pressure sprayer, with the addition of a gauge would make a dandy makeshift brake bleeder.
