Hi, Todd. Good to see you here on WoodCentral. I didn't make it to PATINA this year due to a schedule conflict, specifically a SAPFM meeting at Gunston Hall in Lorton, VA.

Lee Valley carries Dubuque clamps and clamp kits.

However, L-V doesn't state the sizes of the holes you need to drill for the barrel nuts, and that can be a problem if you want to build the kits. The barrel nuts for the four largest sizes are 5/8" in diameter, and they need to be a loose fit in the holes you drill in the jaws. I recently posted an explanation on how I solved the problem of drilling 25/32" holes in hard maple on the turning forum.
