Yeah, my theory on that is that if you're making a closed end pen, the supplied tube shouldn't need to go too far in, since it won't be needed for the fineal. So the supplied tube should be long enough for this (assuming you're not modifying the kit much)

I like simple. Take a close transfer punch and wrap a little tape around the end. Masking tape works really well and the punches are still available to use. If the blank is long, wrap tape close to each end. Keep the layers even so the blank won't be wobbly.
