Good, inexpensive Arca-Swiss style clamp?

Can anyone suggest a sturdy, inexpensive Arca-style clamp? I think I'd prefer one with lever and adjustment screw unless that's not recommended.

Maybe $60 US or less? Much less is OK as this is intended to be a bargain project.

Weight's unimportant as the head and legs are already pushing 3.5 kg. I can't imagine putting more than 3kg on top, even with my old DSLR. It'll be much less than that now that I'm shooting NEX almost exclusively.

It's for a 20-year-old steel Gitzo head that I picked up. It's about 10cm high and 6 cm across the base. (I've ordered the missing screw.)
