Koniktool coil spring compressor - any good?

Hi everybody,

I found this ebay auction below:

http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/Mercedes-Benz-Coil-Spring-Compressor--%23-1801_W0QQitemZ350162493351QQcmdZViewItem

It's a plate-type coil spring compressor, i.e. it looks just right for W126s. Issue is the price - they are selling it new for $165, which sounds dirt cheap. Anyone tried these? Should I go for it?

Thanks!

Just bought one and it works fine. The original Klann model cost ~ $1000

Thanks -

I see others on the board have bought it too. I think I'll go for it.

I bought one and have used it 4 times. It works great and it seems to be very well made.
