A couple old toothbrushes (one for scrubbing, one for gear grease application), good set of small phillips and flat screwdrivers, needle nosed pliers and a small awl. Use 50/50 mix or Simple Green and water, either Shimano or Cals drag grease, good reel oil and grease ( Ardent products are fine). Paper towels, bunch of Qtips, and I like to work on a clear, flat, well lite, surface using a clean white towel as a work mat. I take pics every step of the way and lay my parts outs in exact order upon disassembly. Having a schematic for your reel is great.
