This is a small and quite unique valve spring tool manufactured by the "KD Mfg. Co. Land, PA, Patent Nov 23, 1920." Stamped "Kay Dee Special" Really neat little tool. $40 plus shipping.

One of the best for T valve work - hands-free once compressed !

The really nice thing about these is the compressed spring stays in shape. This allows fitting Chev valve spring caps and makes the fitting of the fiddly collets just as easy.

I too have one of these. Someone in the past made the opening in the lower jaw wider(?), they still work slick! I use a needle nose pliers to install the pins, don't want my fingers in there if they slip. :-)

That's what's nice about this one - can't slip as is locks into place until released !
