I recommend a shop made vise…I made one from a video I saw on the Pen Turners of America forums…(they are free to view – I tried to list a link but my favorite for this got deleted – but I’ve seen several on You Tube also). On the really long pens I drill them on my lathe so I don’t have to keep raising my drill table (I can lathe drill all of them….but it is easier to throw them in my drill press jig).... then I use a hand click clamp with soft wood pads to squeeze the parts together….total cost – nothing – as I had all the stuff around from other projects….and of course every wood worker has clamps.
