after reading through I didn't feel like quoting everyone. I can vouch for vacuum bleeders those things are heaven sent, no need for someone to sit in the car and pump the pedal. When i was in the dealership i could bleed/flush a whole system in 30 minutes by myself. As for drilling out the set screw, I've had to do that on every single wheel on my car. A cordless deal isn't going to cut the bacon unless you have a really sharp metal bit and a few batteries, the best way is with a corded drill, lube, and the biggest bit you can fit. reusing the pads won't be an issue within a few hundred miles they'll even out as they're softer than the rotor, but, you'll notice some diminished braking power because the contact surface has less area due to the ridges until they even out. and put that sucker on jack stands because brake work can be very physical if the components are rusted and corroded.
