making surface plate/table, need clamp?

Where can I get the clamp with the cones that tighten to the bottom bracket? do I have to go to a machine shop, or can they be had online, I've done some searching and can't find any. Thanks. Al.

I had my whipping post done by an old machinist for a couple of hundred dollars, including the surface hardening and grinding. I would be happy with Joe B's post next time around. i have his fork clamp block and while it looks kind of crude it's very effective. Andy.
