Effective for my needs
WoodRiver DV2 Self-Centering Drilling Vise
I purchased this item because I do not have the space for an infrequently used drill press. It is not the best or most accurate solution, however if used slowly and with frequent relief of the drilled hole, it seems to work as advertised. The trick I have found with this item is to carefully mark your center hole and make sure that the guide is aligned, and tight. I stand with my eyes looking directly down the drill like sighting a gun ... I use mild pressure and I extract the drill bit every inch or so. I have found that for the money and the limited space I have, this is a pretty decent alternative. Experiment with cheaper material until you get the hang of the technique required to use this item.

Finally, Someone figured out a way to drill pen blanks without a drill press. Using a lathe requires a chuck. Most entry level bench top drill presses don't have enough throw to drill pen blanks. Comes with 4 bushing that seem to be the ones most used.
Don't buy this product. The drill guides do not provide enough guidance. You will not drill down the center as there is too much play in the drill bit. It is a good concept but a waste of my time and lost drill blanks.
