Couple of question

How good are you at making tools?
Do you have the resources to make them?
These tools are not overly expensive so what is your goal to make them?

Last are you doing an Alpha or Bravo?

I used a slide hammer to get my gimbal bearings out then put new ones in using the empty aluminum rings from the old bearings and a 2x4.
Other than that, I used the exhaust sleeve so I didn't need the exhaust boot tool, and the flex shaft nut driver is actually a good thing to get.

Watching Ship Shape TV there is a company that either rents or you can purchase these tools you might need. Go to there website and look into sponsors.
