Greetings to all once again; I am attaching photos of the clamp for my new Biesmeyer style fence that is under construction. It came out fairly well.
The circular pads are adjustable by carriage bolts threaded in to t-nuts to correct any undesired angularity. The ¾” dowel is a plunger that the cam pushes to lock the fence in place. The two piece pad that the dowel pushes will have an elastomer sandwiched between the pieces to provide a spring action so the cam can over clamp it.
I haven’t installed them yet [because once again I forgot to get enough t-nuts yesterday] but there will be two thread inserts or t-nuts in the wings of the clamp with Allen set screws below the surface of the wings for adjusting both the height and angularity of the clamp and fence. Where the yellow pencil is, is just for graphic depiction of where the ½” shaft goes on which the cam/handle rotates. The fence will be bolted to the clamp with two ⅜” or ½” bolts.
So do you believe it will work?

looks like it will. I think I’d add a little sandpaper so when you lock it down, it won’t have any opportunity to slip
