Removing Valves?

I'm gearing up for this head teardown and rebuild, and in looking through the shop manual, it appears I'm going to need a valve spring compressor. I've seen a couple of DIY ones used, but I don't have the means. I've also found one on eBay for about $45.

Before I do anything, I wanted to see if you guys had any tips or tricks.

If your getting a professional valve job, you might avoid all the fear and loathing and let them remove the valves (and put them back in). Otherwise the socket piece and hammer worked well for me...didnt even lose a collet or nuttin :cool:
