At $29, I also will end up buying one.

I was an early adopter of the Valve Wizard but at the $29 price, it should be faster and I like buying tools.

.... I discovered our prototype actually didn't work well on some of the Lycoming
cylinders. So it went back to the drawing board for some revisions. Due to all that
is currently going on, and the fact that we are very busy it will be a bit of a set-back
on this product. We are still going to produce this tool, but it will be later this year.
We are sorry, and hadn't anticipated the problem that came up.
Thanks, Allan---

I made a valve wobble test tool that also compresses the valve spring. Not the best tool for removing a valve, but a very good tool for doing the wobble test, as the fixture both compresses the spring (allowing measurement of valve movement in the guide) and eliminates the need for removing the spring and retainer; though it can be removed. It was modeled off the Lycoming version of the test tool and you can follow the SI instructions for using their tool. I made two and sold the other here. I would be willing to make more if there is interest. I sold the other for $100.

This is for parallel valve engines only.
