Ahh, I see you found one. I have one with low usage if anybody is interested. I'll let it go for $25 + shipping. Just PM me if you want it.

I have one also; this thing works great. I now look forward to bleeding my shocks. Only thing; I believe; I have the smaller model only touring car shocks will fit inside, not truck shocks. I guess they make a bigger one for truck shocks. Great investment

It looks like a vacuum chamber to pull the air bubbles out of the oil. Put the whole shock in it,cover, and start vacuum.

We have one were I work to pull bubbles out of epoxies and glue. It gets used maybe twice a year. I'll have to try it out.

Wondered into one of these a long time ago and once I used it I can't be without it. No more waiting for shocks to air out.

The place where these are super useful is for 1/5 scale shocks. You run up to 6,000wt at times and waiting for the air to bleed out of those takes all day!
