I usually buy the longer click that size fits all with a quick cut and they ALL cost the same $.45 ea. It is on there last page of tubes so you have to flip though all the pages to get to them.

Does it have to be drilled all the way through....can you drill in from each end and leave a section in the center solid? Seems to me that might work out if you turn between centers and the shaft isn't full length of the handle.

I found tubing in the right diameter today. 10" lengths. Unfortunately, the wall thickness was off. It was K&S Engineering brass tube #136. The wall was something like 0.29" when I measured.

You've not missed anything. 10" tubes are not available for every pen kit. I've only seen them in the lengths you mentioned.
Do a good turn daily!

Letter openers can be any diameter you want to make it so it can have thicker wood in the center and you wouldn't need a tube all the way through, especially since letter openers are subject to hard use.

K&S Engineering brass tube #136. Try Ace Hardware. It's the right diameter but just a tiny bit too thick with the metal walls. If you have the means to reduce the wall thickness, you'd be all set.
