Figured rather an ordering a pen vise for $60 i woiuld make my own and spend the money on a new tool :)

This can slide via the track to accomodate various sized of wood. There is room at the bottom for a sacrifice pience to keep the bottom of the dill-out nice and clean. and the toggle clamp makes sure their is adequate pressure all along the pen blank.
