Please note this is a work in progress. This design should work, however it may change. Video of the holder in action: https://plus.google.com/109144216682485717110/posts/NgQP221Byrh

And the final result (this was the first successful print - optimizations are needed on the software side, as well as a bit of calibration and a finer bit for the dremel) https://plus.google.com/109144216682485717110/posts/gqBArZNd4Ay
