Mini valve spring pressure tester?

I did a search on ebay and found people are selling a kind of mini valve spring pressure tester that you can use in a vice or a drill press, has anyone ever used these and are they any good? Its only $60!!

Also I saw another kind that uses a beam type torqe wrench to compress the spring and has a table to covert the torque value to pressure or something like that.

Sure they work great for valve springs and are just as accurate as any other type measurement device. I bought mine from Summit Racing and while it works just fine for the valve springs, I also have a very special use for it. They work great at measuring the tongue weight on a trailer.

Tongue weight?

You mention that you can use this device to measure tongue weight. What conversion do you use to calculate that? Thanks.
