Fast Action Bench Clamp - frigator - 07-30-2016

Been seeing all those fast action bench clamps used on the Fesstool table and was wondering what is available for regular thick workbenches with 3/4in dogholes. Found this one on Lee Valley and it looks great but its 84$.

Any other options out there?

Leigh makes a similar hold-down clamp.  I've not used one though

A standard holdfast is pretty fast at holding fast. Cheaper too

Holdfast. 

Excellent value. Google "TFWW" and search holdfast. For some reason my iPad can't copy and paste the link.
