Here's a measured drawing of the surviving (right) gripper, C&P part no. 81, from C&P New Series 10x15 press s/n C50291. This press was manufactured in 1911, but this part may or may not be original to it (and may or may not have been manufactured by Chandler & Price). The part itself is pretty beaten-up (to the point that its thickness, which was probably 1/8 inch originally, is now quite variable). All dimensions are approximate.
