Basic Scope Mounting tools

I would like to get into mounting scopes my self and I was wondering what tools/supplies would be needed to do this? I know i need (base, rings, scope, loctite) for each mount... the tools needed are (torque driver(inch lbs) bits for it, 2 levels, some type of locktitie not sure which? Im sure there are a few other things.. Any help would be appreciated and is there a kit that any would recommend with out breaking the bank? Thanks

    I think you can get started with flat and torx screw drivers.

    I use a torque wrench for base screws with just a couple threads of engagement, but that does not happen very often.

    Amazon.com: Wheeler Professional Reticle Leveling System: Sports & Outdoors

    This reticle leveler really works well for me.

    I use the Wheeler Professional Scope Mounting Kit. So far it has worked very good. As for the loctite I use the blue kind. Hope this helps.

    I use the kit you have in your link. I really like the Wheeler but I can't comment on the Weaver cause I have no experience with it.
