Camshaft Locking Tool

Planing for a timing chain on my S model. Like the timing set from ECS. Looking for a camshaft lock tool. ECS has the timing lock kit from Scwhaben for $142. I am sure it a good tool, but thats a little steep for a one time use tool. Can any recommend a camshaft lock too that they have use with good success that might be cheaper and where they acquired it from

in addition you also need a crankshaft holding tool.... to loosen and re-torque the crankshaft hub... the lock tool in the timing kit is not enough. I used the Schwaben.
