Should work. Put a new chain on. New chain as a worn chain will wear the cassette as it is stretched and does not match up. If the chain is severely worn it may even jump. Chain is cheaper and should be replaced unless it is almost new. A cassette will typically last 2-3 chains. If you sometimes use 28 then why are you giving that up? Is a closer ...

Individually tools are expensive. And some (very) expensive tools you would only use once or a few times are not worth buying. Like Park or Pedros and buy a kit. It seems like a lot but $200 - $400 is a good starter kit. Then just fill in with specialty tools or pay to have the work done. Too many people don't use a torque wrench but with nice bikes ...

The COMPLETE set will likely cost more than 3x the cost of your frame and parts. The tool to prepare a bottom bracket is almost 500 bucks all by itself. So I'm not going to answer "the COMPLETE set", especially because your copy/paste wall of text doesn't indicate all of the exact specifications for all your parts, which is needed to know exactly which ...
