      Do you want to be able to drill pen blanks quickly and have the hole consistently on center? If so, the Apprentice™ Pen Drilling Vise will do it! Position the drilling vise on center under the drill bit and clamp the vise soundly to the table. The jaws of the vise ride on 2 rods and are opened or closed by turning a knob. The self-centering jaws will clamp square or round stock up to a 1" square (1 1/4" round). Simply rotate the adjusting knob to open the jaws, insert the pen blank, close the jaws and drill the hole.

    Comments On Mar 17, 2018:I highly recommend this vise. When I first started turning I didn't have this and I have the scars to prove it. Great investment for any shop.

    Great little vise

    Comments On Nov 30, 2017:The only thing that I had to do was to drill some mounting holes in the corners of the base. It would have been nice if they were pre-drilled from the factory.

    decided to buy rather than make

    Comments On Aug 16, 2016:Well, I decided to buy this rather than make one. I still had to do some work on it as it was not as heavy as I wanted. So I made a bigger and heavier base for it that fit my drill press. Now I do not have to worry about moving it around as it is always centered now. It does what it is supposed to do though and holds my blanks while drilling vertical.

    Good product

    Comments On Sep 07, 2014:This is a good product the best part is it has zero clearance as many vises have a base. Great for table top drill presses.

    Comments On Oct 08, 2013:I am on my third type of vise and this one beats them all. Although, I do have the screw jump a thread once in a while, but a little patience and I can always get it back on track. Maybe someone can give me a tip to avoid that problem.
