    What tool for what part of adjusting, and on what brakes units with what blocks? Never had to use a tool for brake adjustment, except I do sometimes use a clamp around the lever to put the brakes on so I can set up the blocks. I think it is called a 3rd hand. Same can be done with an elastic band, so as far as I can see, no tool necessary for adjusting the brakes.

    But others may know better.

    Park used to make a wonderful little tool that helped center the calipers. It was kind of a cone wrench with an abrupt 90 degree turn at the end. I could really use it on one of my bikes where a regular cone wrench won't work due to interference from the headset.
