/ Tool Improvkisation
However, I do not have the proper tool for tightening the locknut.
Ultegra cassette btw
looks like the only answer.
don't want to scratch or damage anything.
As above, not bodgeable.
The only way you can bodge it is if you take the spindle out then use a coin or large washer held in an adjustable spanner. This is a pain and only really any good in dire emergencies. The tools are quite cheap now so probably easier to get one.
Just tighten it up by hand, get distracted and forget to finish it properly, and then wonder why your gears are slipping, as I did once.
Get the tool for a fiver. Cheaper than the consequences of bodging something which then slips and trashes the cassette, freehub or spokes...or more likely your hand.
Or a length of old chain. a thin screwdriver and a workmate ...

I use an old chain held with a pair of adjustable grips.
