I bought one of those precision screwdriver sets from home depot (comes with like 20 some odd phillips, flat head , and torx bits) Then i use a 10mm socket and a small screwdriver style driver for handle nuts.

Dental picks or automotive picks ($4 @ harbor freight) for removing shields from bearings and smaller c-clips throughout the reel.

A paper clip that serves as a bearing removal tool.

Your choice of cleaner/degreaser. I use simple green and water mixed
Your choice of reel grease and bearing oil (daiwa space age and tsi 321 are my choices)
Acetone/lighter fluid for flushing bearings
Blue shop towels
Boca spool pin remover
and an old toothbrush for scrubbing parts.

Oh q-tips also for tighter to reach parts.

I think most use the Harbor freight one. Cheap and works well.
