Simple: tools are your fingers to tighten/loosen the barrel adjuster nut at the derailleur, or maybe inline adjuster near the shift lever. And the feedback tool is your ears. I'm guess you're only 3/4 of a twist away from spot-on.

As Bill K pointed out, Park Tool has an excellent website for repair and maintenance.

Bonus if you have a maintenance / repair stand, since it's best to pedal and adjust the nut simultaneously.
