4. @Doug Fattic, thanks. I left out the dropouts. I have the Park tool, which is unusual for a non-professional mechanic, but I use them a fair bit working on my bikes and my friends' bikes. Interesting point about the misalignment possible. If I ever need to buy another set, I'll get a kind that is not subject to that problem. DIY ones might work. I remember using the Campagnolo ones, and they did feel more precise but also less versatile, i.e. fitting fewer sizes.
