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.
?

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.
