I recommend

http://www.stewmac.com/SiteSearch/?search=Vice

It has soft jaws, is useful for several functions.

With all due respect, there is a big difference between "vice" and "vise."
GWatson,not familiar with the brand you mention in the link.

Even if I know what I want, I usually check on eBay to find out pricing. "Sometimes" it is much expensive going through them, plus finding more varieties.

At my age (70) any Vice would be welcome. I have to admit Happiness is walking around in a tool store.

Laugh and the world laughs with you. My wife asks if I want to see a ballet with her.... I reply do you want to walk around Home Depot with me for few hours.
I need vise or vice for holding billiard balls. I used one that I have... put some cardboard on the jaws and drilled. It worked very well but now I want to upgrade.

I know you are asking about a vise, but I've done some drilling in balls (cue balls, too) and found a concave jig on a drill press works best. Much more control.

Hard to beat the StewMac stuff (as a guitar player myself. but not a luthier). I bought one from Home Depot one (lifetime guarantee) and added the soft magnetic mounted silicone jaws. I am not saying the HD and silicone jaws are better than the SM set up; I am just telling you want I did.

BESSEY Non-Marring Vise Jaw Accessory for Use on Vises with Jaws from 3 in. to 6 in. Wide-BV-NVJ - The Home Depot

The soft jaws aren't perfect, but they do the job.

Here's what I have and it's working just fine. I'm drilling freehand (carefully & slowly). Results are WriteOn. I do not have a drill press and do not have room for one at this time. Would like a small good quality vise for pool balls and other little doodads. The balls I'm using are cheap plastic and accept a drill with no resistance.
