Valve compressor tool

So I found a couple of different valve compressor tools out there. Anyone have any recommendations or any will do fine? Thanks

Generally, a tool which grasps and compresses the valve spring is the best choice.
Stay away from those quick removal type tools, which use the blows of a hammer to compress the spring, and remove the keepers.

Preferably, an inexpensive tool such as this will do fine, and please wear Your safety glasses!

Really depends a bit on whether you have the head off the motor or not.

Lead, or follow, but just stay out of my way.
