If you remove the extractor rod, when you go to reassemble it, don't just stick a pliars on it and crank like hell.
If you do that, you run the very real risk of screwing up the ejector star.
Put empty cases in the cylinder FIRST. They help support the star when you're tightening the rod, and the chances of bending something are significantly reduced.
As for screwdrivers, WalMart's sporting goods section carries (or did not too long ago) a nice multi-set that is Winchester branded. The only complaint I have about mine is that the magnet came loose and when I remove the tip from the handle as often as not the magnet comes with it.
