Small metal tube thing?


I'm making a couple of drill guides and don't want the holes to slowly grow (we've all been there ). I saw a tutorial where they lined the holes with small pieces of metal tube, just like you would see on a kreg jig or something. But I can't figure out what that would be called.
What should I search for? Metal tube brought up conduit and stuff that's too big

Thanks

Look for ferrules, or bushings, or inserts.

There is 3 terms, and many more synonyms in a paper dictionary.

Remember those?

Being kind of a DIY guy I clamp the drill guide material in my flare tool clamp and clamp the flare clamp to make certain it is kinda square to the material being drilled.
