You could also try to use a blind eye salmon hook as a tube holder, the gradually increasing diameter usually holds the tube securely. Sometimes when using brass or aliminium I have found that the tube material rotates on the inner tube, but super glue fixes this. Other alternatives to the commercial tube tools are needles of variaous kinds. Even if I have a tube vise I seldom use it since I find the simple hook or needle system works better.
