I have an original belt tension service tool and I can tell you from experience, save your money, it's just not a great use of funds. I find the tool mildly interesting from a historical perspective but you are much better off learning to get a feel for it yourself as Judson mentions. If you have not replaced a timing belt before I would think an owner should prefer to rely on their judgement from reading instructions above rather than entrusting belt tension to a mechanical device. It's easy to learn, and not a big deal. Once you've done it a few times and "have the touch", it's like riding a bike- you never forget.
