didn't even remember I had all these kits, some keychains, razors,(cleaned out all the turning supplies and kits recently in the garage, consolidated everything so I know what I have) only problem is I didn't know back then you needed to purchase bushings with them.
since this tube was a 7mm tube, I turned a set of 10.5 mm pen bushings backwards and judged the thickness. turned out ok I think.
Next trip to woodcraft or order Ill have to get a brush kit with a matching acrylic blank.
(I should have painted the tube, another error in the learning process, was just trying to kill some time until I begin my next project Monday)
