Trying to bleed a set of mono minis, but struggling to find a hose that will fit the bleed nipple. Where do others get theirs?

I’ve tried the lbs and pet shop for fish tank air hose, trying Halfords for windscreen washer hose tomorrow.

My local hardware store has a bunch of different hoses on a reel, they're only about a quid per metre. B&Q normally have the same, although I try to avoid them at all cost.

Ive a length of aquarium hose, widened at one end with a thicker piece of rubber hose. Simple but very effective as long as you don't wobble the hose too much.

Acquired it off a bike shop many many years ago :oops: there, the confessions out.

The jar, if anyone's interested held cocktail olives.

Would a Jar that once contained mustard work?
