Other than spending that much for a tool you'll use less than once in a blue moon, no. Crown setters are simple tools, not much more than a nicely faced pipe, you use as a slide hammer.
If you're really not going to do this more than once a year, you're better off bringing the fork and crown race to the bike shop and paying them $5.00 or less to tap it home.
