    What size wrench?

    ... To open brake bleeders?

    I've been using a big nasty crescent wrench and making a mess of things.

    8mm covers almost all of them....a few bikes have the 10mm in spots...

    I keep a 12pt 8mm in the top try of my box for nipping brakes...

    I always use a six point on lines and bleeders. I like them to look like nobody has ever turned them.

    Sears Why don't you just give me the money you are wasting.

    You can get a set like that at Harbor Freight for $6

    Because I am mean and need the excess for my maple addiction.... Seriously the point is spend a small amount of $$ and quit using crescent wrenches on ANY part of the bike.

    Agreed adjustable wrenches will round off bolts very quickly. I do however have an extra large adjustable in case I ever come across a bolt that is over 1". I think it opens up to 3" I have used it, once. Bought it at harbor freight for $12. I think its on in store item only thing though because I can't find it online.

    Looks kinda like the wrench Bear in Armagedon carries on his shoulder when he tries to stop Harry from shooting AJ.

    OXIM707SBK, Set, Wrench, Metric, Combination, Midget, 6-Point (7 pcs.) (4 to 9 mm)
    The 8mm in this set that I bought when I was a mechanic is the best little brake bleeding wrench I've ever used. It's better than any right angle bleeding wrench I own or have used. When the bleeder is 10mm, you usually don't have any clearence issues, so any good quality 6 point will work just fine.

    That's nice, but at $137 bones, that little set would be worth more than my entire tool collection....

    Ditto on the six-point! I have a nice set of 3/8 inch metric sockets, but unfortunately, they're all twelve point. I would love it if they were all six-point. Twelve's are nice when you don't have a lot of room to work in, but I use six-points whenever I can, as I also don't like to ding up fasteners. Keeps everything looking new.

    While Harbor Freight isn't the be-all to end-all, I will confess to picking up monster sockets and other oddball tools on occasion when I don't want to buy a whole set of something. Upon close inspection, it appears everything there was made in China, however.

    I have about 6 sets of wrenches but the ones I prefer to use for bleeding is the one from the $20 husky stubby metric wrench set.

    If not at HD, then get the stanley (labeled) version @ WalMart for a few $ more, both have lifetime warranties and are decent in fit and finish.
    Though I think the HD version is 6 point, WM is 12, so try HD if you got em.

    I will check tonight for you but I thought it was a regular bolt not an allen bolt.
