This tool is available at Harbor Freight. Go to their web site and check it out. If I remember correctly, the specs on it are less than impressive -- something like 1500 lbs max. While that sounds like a lot, I don't think I'd feel comfortable using it knowing how far the spring must be compressed, and estimating how much force is required to do so. I think you would be operating near the max capacity for the tool. IMHO, probably not a good idea. (besides the fact that applying force on only one side seems like it would be unstable.)

Just my 2-cents. (Arguably worth that)
