I just use some threaded rod and large nylon washers, it has never failed. I'm sure that one will do the job fine though looking at it.

Sounds like an Urban Dictionary example.

She said "Me love you long time" so, for 20 dollars, she took me to her flat and gave me the Chinese bearing press.
And Darkness and Decay and the Coronavirus held illimitable dominion over all.

I've got a more traditional looking one from China, for under £40 and it's fine.

One tip, if you are able to wait a bit, is to put it on your 'Watched items' and keep an eye on the price - it can rise and fall quite a bit depending on the markets - obviously 'buy low'...

For instance, I grabbed this when it dropped to about £37... https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Bicycle-BB-Bearing-Press-Kit-Bike-Headset-Cup-Pressing-Tool-Bike-Care-Kit/264290722666?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2057872.m2749.l2649
If it ain't broke, fix it 'til it is...
