Buying a diesel compression tester (kit) .

I maintain (break) a few diesel MBs and VWs and any diesel I can get my hands on for family and friends. So I am looking to get a compression test kit. I found a few and was wondering if anyone could advise for or against any particular ones.

Amercan Diesel Compression Test kit , $108.00 [URL="http://store.autotoolexpress.com/statu15-51.html"] with 7 total adapters to fit MB, VW, Volvo, Toyota, Nissan, Ford ....
That does not seem a bad deal.

Milton Industries without Adapters -- $71.00

Adapters start at around 12.00 for MB and VW injector it looks like.
MightyVac Digital Kit 199.00

Heck here is a page that has a lot of choices .

Anyone have any suggestions for a poor shadetree mechanic? I would rather spend $100 than $200 however in the long run I also I would rather spend $200 on one good tool than $200 on two or three crappy tools if for nothing else than the enjoyment of using a nice tool.

thanks
