Works great but...............
WoodRiver Deluxe Self Centering Pen and Bottle Stopper Drilling Vise
This is a good vice and is well-built. My only complaint is that it doesn't accommodate the Woodcraft acrylic bottle stopper blanks without a lot of "forcing". Make the blanks smaller or the vice jaws open farther. Other than that, nice product.
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
Nice vise but hard to clamp to press.

Very nice vise but is quite difficult to clamp to drill press. You need to bolt it down because there is no tabs for clamps.
Only one flaw
Steve the Rookie
I use the vise to drill holes in calligraphy pens for the nib insert and grips for swords used in reenactment events. It set up quickly and easily.
The only problem I found is that there is some side to side slipping, which is to be expected since the parts need to move freely. As long as this is taken into account the vice works great.
Does exactly what it says it will do!
I made my own clamp based on a video I saw on line and the bit always came out wrong at the bottom. Then used a screw clamp, it was a little wobbly.
This vice hit the spot the very first time.
My only complaint would be the same for most of these is the chip removal after use. I kept having to pull the wooden plate out, knocking it off and then pushing it back through and pushing the other side clear. Not sure how to design around that. The other two at WC seem to have the issue even worse.
Clamp it to my Shop Smith system in drill press mode. Centres blanks as advertised.

Awesome, this is the one to get
Whether you are small production pen turner or just a hobbiest, you will find this tool a valuable addition to your shop. If you already have a manual screw type one, give it away.

At long last I can drill those pesky 7mm holes without the bit wandering off course! Align it once on the drill press table and use it. It is accurate and the results are completely repeatable. Like previous reviewers, I wish it would handle a larger blank.
Need to work with it.

Give it a chance. It works very good once you get the hang of it.
