Hi Kevin, You could try the original Campy tool designed for this job. A pic is at:

Or, do like I do, and buy a 10mm combination wrench from Sears. The box end of the wrench has 12 points, which lets you handle the limited angular range allowed by the saddle and post.

In any event, the post is not designed for ease of use! The micro-tilt capability is wonderful, as long as you don't need to adjust it frequently.
