I picked mine up at a yard sale on a color drive a couple of years back.  Where did you buy yours?

I bought mine from SJMParts.com. I think it was a little under $20 for the tool.

I compressed the spring as far as it will go, but I still can't get the valve to move so that the keepers will fall out. Any advice? Thanks.

Not sure what you mean by "get the valve to move". Make sure the valve was closed and not on the cam lobe. If the rotator is above the keepers, just reach in with a pick or small screwdriver and push them a little and they should fall out. A small magnet should do it too. They are probably being held by oil or crud.
