Tools for Doing Pre Key Mod

I have read info on several boards and elsewhere on the net.

Some say they used a heavy duty C-Clamp with the flat plate removed. Comments said it was scary and some had problems with it coming off.

Some say they used a bottle jack but it was scary and outright dangerous.

Some have used two jaw pullers and those comments were it was scary.

I have found two tools for doing this. I will post links to them below. What experiences have you had and what tools did you use? What were your experiences and was it scary the way you did it?

I used a bottle jack. It was anything but scary. Easiest way to do it in my opinion.
