I used table knife to make valve tool. It took probably 10-20 min.

Lots of guys on the GS Resources swear by the zip tie method. Personally I use the tool but it's hard to argue with success.

Is there a chance of bending a valve head doing that? Especially with higher pressure spring rates, or even stock...??? I am nervous of this trick.... but not done it.
