Default PSU Modding tool?

I'm looking to mod my PSU, and I'm ordering sleeving from MDPC-X
And i need a universal pin removing tool. I was looking at this,
Pin-Remover by MOLEX - The Original | Sleeve-Tools | Sleeve Kits + Tools | MDPC Sleeve | MDPC-X International
but, i dont feel like paying almost $50 CAD

Does anyone know any vendors or tools that i could buy?

You can always look at this: Newegg.ca - SUNBEAMTECH PMTK PSU Modding Tool Kit

It has mixed reviews though. There is somebody on these forums, but can't remember who it is.

There's a reason it's so expensive, I've messed up a couple times and twisted it pretty bad and it hasn't budged at all. I think a lot of cheaper ones are more prone to breakage. If you're doing a whole PSU I'd say this is worth it.

I have the sunbeam kit, works alright but then again so do paperclips or a staple. I wouldnt spend 50 bux on one though, as I said you can use paperclips or a staple to remove pins.
Believe I paid $7 for the sunbeam kit on sale way back.

Use staples. They are way better than any tool you can buy. Every brand you buy will break. Most definitely if you are a n00b at removing the pin.
