Im wondering if the cost of this bleedkit is worth the cash? http://www.shockbleeder.com/products/shock_bleeder_kits

Im a home mech and occasionally fixes for my friends. I would love to have a kit that could bleed my brakes in 1min with outstanding results. I already have a vacuum pump & compressor available. So i will only require the kit/tank. Should i DIY one or buy it off the website? They dont seem to be very hard to replicate. ( i wish to keep it cheap, as i only use it occasionally)

What are your experience with DIY bleeders for shock/fork/brakes?

Check out EZ MTB bleed kits for brakes. I own a shop and that's what I use. They're cheap price wise and have high quality syringes and fittings.
The setup you're looking at is made for suspension bleeding and that's a whole different animal. If you wanna do shock bleeds it's not rocket surgery and you really can DIY a bleed rig. As for forks... a lot of your common ones bleed with a syringe from the top, so not much benefit to using a bleed rig on those.
