I use very fine scizzors or #11 blades to remove the etch from the sprue. A set of wide tweezers are good for bending smaller parts, but for longer pieces an ecth mate of some kind is handy. For glue I mainly use a gel type of crazy glue (CA), it gives a few seconds of adjustability and a larger glueing area.
