Make your very own fantastical Pencil Tube! I, being a high school student, am one of those people that can not hold onto a writing utensil for more than two classes. However, under the guidance of the deity-esque Pencil Tube I was able to go for an entire month without losing a single pencil. However, some largely proportioned jerk decided to sit on my majestic pencil tube, snapping it into pieces. So I decided to make a new one, and an instructable to go with it!

This is my first instructable so do enjoy.

Step 1: Materials

-A Street Address
You need a street address for the nice people at ClearTec to deliver for free sample of plastic mailing tubes.

-Pencils
For insertion into the pencil recepticle.

-Knife/Razor
For making the incision in the pencil tube cap.
It has been two months since I ordered that set of plastic tubes...
Nice, I love free things. I wouldn't build this because I typically use a variety of pens and pencils each day, but it's a good idea. Useful especially for SAT's.
Just ordered some tubes, see how it goes. There were no issues with business name?
I ordered under the guise of my grandfathers company. They didn't do any checks or anything so it should be find. They will probably send a follow up email, but just respond with the information they need and everything should be fine.
What I did was I put N/A on the company name.
Ah, I see. I just wrote Drafting Services, because I ordered 3 tubes, 18" x 3 1/2" dia. for holding 18" x 24" construction documents rolled up. They sent a confirmation, not sure if it was auto-response or not.
You might not receive the exact amount to order, I ordered 5 and received 2.
Still haven't received them yet, how long did yours take?
A week and a half to two weeks.
oh man, i don't know about pencil tubes, but i am definitely interested in those plastic tubes they're offering for free, iv already ordered a batch of 10, 1"x12" thick walled tubes, i'm excited! i'm going to use at least one as a see thru tube for a mini spud gun, that way when it ignites, i can see the flash! and they say that my shipment is on the way! il post when i get 'em!
Cool! I was going to add a step on other applications but I thought that there were too many to list. Wouldn't combustion melt small plastic tubes though? And remember, they're just samples. I ordered five and only received two.
oh my god, i had better get more than 2 tubes, otherwise im going to be ordering an assload more... nothing you cant do with plastic tubes... as for a spudgun, its only a quick flash of combustion, its not enough to actually melt the plastic. man, that just upset me right there, i want my plastic tubes dammit!!
If you find another source to actually purchase them not in quantities of 1000 let me know.
for sure man, because i am definitely going to look for them... although i doubt that il be able to find them without actually buying them retail without something inside them...
