Valve grinder

If someone would, look at e-bay item # 2490419926 (valve grinder), and let me know what you think about this. I gotten to where I need a valve grinder very badly. The only reservation I really have about it, is that it doesn't use a (chuck)...the valve stems are clamped in place. Do you feel that this will affect accuracy? It will only be use on small engines. The reason I need one is the fact there are no machine shops at a resonable distance. If I do get this one, what kind of liquid should I use while grinding valves?

While I'm not an authority on valve grinders, I'm sure it would do the job sufficiently for small engine work. I can't tell from the pics how the valve is held and rotated. I imagine if it is a clamp setup, then both sides of the clamp would expand/contract equally from the center of the axis of rotation so as to keep the valve rotating true.
