Valve Spring Lifting Tool

I wish that the joint on the back of the black lever (ie the area of the black lever that connects to the silver clamp) had reinforced metal on it.
The metal is so thin that it didn't withstand much pressure. My dad is going to weld it. I'll luk if it works.

We reinforced the lever to no avail. So I then resorted to other measures...I used the nail extraction end of a hammer to lift the spring and hammer (lightly) on the valve to reveal the spring stays and removed them with a magnet.
