Handle appears new and softwood. Looks like a dowel. No doubt Parker would have used hardwood probably Maple. Don't know what the end treatment would have been for sure it was not plastic.

If someone can give me the specs on original I can make a near copy

I saw these on Lie-Neilson when I was getting a new chisel.

Pretty fancy, but correct.

I have ove virtually identical to the one you show Edgar, but there is no manufacturer name anywhere on it - just the model number.

Which one are you referring to, Dean? The first one is a Parker, made after Union tool bought the vice business, ca. 1957

The wood handle on mine is exactly like yours Edgar, as is the rest of the vise.
