Not to parrot Gary too much, but...

I've definitely used a punch/ chisel/ screwdriver and a hammer to break those free on the trail without having a proper socket at hand. it can be done!

Ditto on cleaning off shoes too. gasoline or paint thinner or turpentine should be able to get the grease out and do a final cleanup with Dawn.

I have done the same thing with a punch on my 13" duramax axle nut.I could not find the right prong socket to fit the nut at any of the auto parts  stores including napa so I just used the punch to loosen and tighten.

As far as re-using oily brake shoes from bad seals,I have done it many times as well but instead of gas I used brake cleaner and then sanded down till the surface looked clean.
