Mine in my wood shop is from Harbor Freight as well. It's OK for small work. I also use wooden 2 screw clamps for this.
In the metal and welding shop, which is now at my son's house across town, we have several larger drill press vises, including one that adjusts for angle drilling. They were picked up at a machine shop auction many years ago. I combined my metal working tools with his and all are now at his place. I just go there whenever I want to do any serious metal work now.
