Looking for a particular drill press vise for Pen turning

At the Pen turning class they had a particular drill press vise that was perfect. I currently have the lee valley version of the holder for the pen blanks and it works but not a fan.  Its a self centering pen vise and its really tall
I pin it down with a c lamp on the drill press  
but at the class we used a heavier lower profile vise which I found easier to use 
an Irwin Record 414 drill press vice - amazon.ca had but out of stock for now - I like this as easy large  screw and it nice an heavy to hold on the drill press 
but I have something from  Princess auto that is a lower profile I got  for making resin  rings  
so I think I will  print the jaws that have a v-groove in and attach to this low profile for now 
found these on thingiverse - and I can modify 
have the v-groove to hold the pen blanks


love having the 3d printer
