Need clamps for my Paulk Workbench

I'm making the Paulk Bench that has 3/4" holes in it for clamping material. Festool makes clamps that fit thru 3/4 holes but are 40 bucks for 2 of them. Seems like it would take a rudementary clamp to do the job, not a pricey one. So the ? is do I have any options for clamping thru a 3/4 hole? or should I just bit the bullet and get the Festools.
?

I've got a pair from Grizzly for my tracksaw. Only pic I've got, but maybe you can see them in the middle there.

How thick is your top? Holdfasts might do well for you.

Top is just ober 1/2" so maybe .570". Looks like Grizzly only sells them with that track saw. I cannot find it on their website. anyways thay probably would be the same price after looking at their prices for the other stuff. There is a Rockler 1 mile from my house, and I may as well help them out by spending some money.
It just seems like money not well spent. I can go to HFreight and get a cutoff saw for that kinda cash. I bought some large c-clamps at HFreight last week for $3 for a 6" and $4 for an 8". Maybe some hefty grinding would make them work. But I don't do that kind of labor....union rules.

You could cut some elongated holes in your workbench so that small bar clamps could be used. These holes could be small, sized for the clamp that is used.
