    Three of my methods all use prismatic 4 inch jaws.

    I use a cheap wooden screw clamp. I glued a couple of scraps of wood between the jaws, and then with the jaws closed and squeezing those blocks of wood, I drilled a 3/4" diameter hole centered on the point where the two scraps come together.

    To use, I lay it flat on the bench, put the blank into the hole, and tighten the jaws. Because the hole is round, it is able to grip any blank regardless of its actual cross section, and because it is flat on the bench when I insert the blank and tighten the jaws, the blank is always perpendicular to the bench, or to the drill press table when I transfer it to drill the blank.
