Looking for one thing and finding another

I was looking for techniques to 'solo bleed' the brakes on my car and stumbled into a Camaro forum along the way.  I then found www.speedbleeder.com which are brake bleeders with an internal check valve.  I think I'm going to figure out the front caliper bleeder size and buy a set.  The rear bleeders are tiny and I doubt they have them...but I'll check anyway just in case.  It would be nice to redeem myself after two failures in brake bleeding.

Another conversation today brought up the topic of 'bench bleeding' the master cylinder-a term this brake bleeding noob has never heard before today.  It's supposed to ensure that the master cylinder isn't dry between chambers and that all air is out of the system at that point.  It's also supposed to make bleeding the rest of the system easier.  Yet another technique to try out in an effort to get a solid pedal.

I didn't do shit today but I did learn a few things...that's progress in my book.

I feel like I've just crawled out from under a rock.
