I'm trying to scale an extrusion, however the cursor is always way off somewhere, so how do I set it so it is placed on the point i'm editing?

With the vertices you are editing selected, press "shift-Skey" and choose "cursor to selected". Alternately, switch your editing to "local" view in the selection box in the 3D window header, but remember to switch back to global when you've completed the edit.
