      ^^^^ What bm02tj said. Tape the tool and pad the rim for protection.Soft rag or sock.

        I use a brake adjuster dipped in plasti-dip. A taped on piece of old inner tube works as well

          I use a long breaker bar and wrap the end in doubled up heavy terry cloth towel. Same for area that contacts outer rim.
