Product Information:

The unique design of this vise assures the jaws clamp firmly and quickly and remain both parallel to each other and square to your drill press table. The jaw design eliminates off center holes in your pen blanks and increases your production while making a critical pen-making process easy. Featuring a comfortable T-handled grip and a fully adjustable heavy duty toggle clamp the Deluxe Self-Centering Pen & Bottle Stopper Vise features vertical "V" slots in the jaws which secure round or square blanks under your bit for perfect, repeatable drilling. Just clamp a pen or bottle stopper blank in the vise, center under your drill bit and clamp the vise base to your table. The vise will remain centered on every subsequent pen blank up to 1- 1/2" square, (2- 3/16" diagonal).


  • Comfortable T-handle design

  • Clamping capacity from 0 – 2- 3/16”

  • Repeatable drilling every time

    Wish that another insert could be provided for drilling rectangular knife handle blanks in the 1" x 1 1/2"-2" range. That would make it perfect for me!

    Comments about 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.

    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.

    Comments about WoodRiver Deluxe Self Centering Pen and Bottle Stopper Drilling Vise :

    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.

    Comments about WoodRiver Deluxe Self Centering Pen and Bottle Stopper Drilling Vise :

    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.

    Comments about WoodRiver Deluxe Self Centering Pen and Bottle Stopper Drilling Vise :

    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.
