Woodcraft has come up with a solution with a much lower price point than having to purchase a drill press. The NEW WoodRiver DV2 Self-Centering Drilling Vise (item #158385) makes it easy and affordable, utilizing your corded or cordless hand drill. Bore straight, accurate holes for everything from pen blanks to bottle stoppers.
The Vertical “V” slots in the vise’s jaws secure round or square blanks under the drilling guide, keeping them parallel and square for consistently accurate and repeatable drilling. Fully adjustable to accommodate pen blanks and bottle stopper blanks up to 1-1/2”. A sturdy angled steel base allows for comfortable use with a hand held drill. Just clamp a pen or bottle stopper blank in the vise, center under your guide, and drill away. Vise will remain centered on every subsequent pen blank and bottle stopper up to 1-1/2″ square (2-3/16″ diagonal).
The WoodRiver DV2 Self-Centering Drilling Vise includes a set of 4 Drilling Guides and Stop Collars for the most commonly used sizes (7mm, 10mm, 25/64″, and 27/64″). Other sized drilling guides and stop collars sold separately.
With the development of the Whiteside “TruFit” Pen Maker’s Bits which are designed to fit the brass tubes of the pen kits, the use of these bits are NOT recommended. Please use any standard pen maker’s or brad point bits for the best fit with the guide collars.
