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.

Amazon does sells camshaft holding tools they are cheap but read all comments and choose wisely.

Depending on which car your going to replace the timing chain, i have 02 R53 and my timing cam holder kit won't work on my R55 S clubman N14, i also own a crankshaft holder tools when i replaced the crankshaft (Harmonic balancer) with ATI on my R53, and in the process of getting all my parts to work on timing chain on R55 so my concern which i posted and no one respond if the R53 Crankshaft holder tools can be use in R55 if they are the same bolt pattern if anyone done a timing chain can you please share... The tools distance between bolts is around 2 inches apart.
