Default Question/Help on Lining Beads

I was gifted some tubing to line bhb's.

Now what?

I do have a tube cutter and electronic callipers.

However, I dont have a machine/press to line them. Ive looked into them and they are quite costly. I dont really sell enough beads to justify spending that kind of money.

So question is: What are my other options?

I remember reading awile back about a hand held contraption sold at Harbor Freight. Not sure if that is still made.

I'd like to line a few beads by this weekend to gift back.

Can someone direct me?

I use these for lining by hand.
A steel block, hammer and a piece of leather and you're pretty much good to go.
I broke the first few doing it that way so practice on some beads you don't like. lol
