Default how to

I am interesting in doing a double closed end pen using tubes from kits. I know there are instructions and how to's here and what is needed. Can someone help direct me in the correct direction. I have a couple of cigar bands and would like to make some souvenir pens for my boys and my self. Thank you for your help.

...or use your standard mandrel. No special tools needed. Read the two closed end pen articles on my website at http//

You will find info in the library.

I picked up one of AS's closed end mandrels. Man that thing makes making a closed end pen as easy as pie.
