Put something small under the valve like a piece of wood or something so it can't slide out

I screwed around with that trick for awhile. It won't work unless your magnet can rest on top of the valve stem mine was too big. I bought the tusk universal valve compressor and it works awesome!

Thanks travis I put a 4x4 piece of wood underneath and had to hit it a mallet to break it free. The head was shot I did that too so I'd be more hesitant to do that to a good head?!? Yea that video on youtube had to be from a brand new head because it was easier to push down bent valves rather than get it unstuck.
