Hi David, Here is the photo you requested. It came with a 9/64" drill bit to drill the bead blanks and to put the hole in Ruth's bottle stopper mandrel as seen here. I also tapered the bottle stopper mandrel a little to be able to get my gouge in a little tighter. The bead mandrel (pin) is simply an 8d duplex nail with a divot in the head for a tail center. I did put a slight angle on the lower "head" as well.

And here is most of the beads strung into a necklace just for fun.
