Chris,

The pin upon which the tube is mounted is a steel crochet hook. These are smoothly tapered, and come in a variety of sizes (end diameters), and should be available as 'vintage' items on the big auction site for around $1 each

Be sure to get the vintage steel ones, as modern versions are plastic or aluminium, & they're not up to the job.

These crochet hooks have a flattened area in the middle which can be gripped by the jaws of almost any standard hook vice.

If people concentrated on the really important things in life, there'd be a shortage of fishing poles (spey rods). Doug Larson

Take only photographs, retain only memories, leave only a good impression of yourself, perhaps just footprints.
