Clifton Shoulder Planes

The Clifton line of shoulder planes are the direct descendants of the legendary Preston planes of old. Preston was bought out during the Great Depression by the company that became Record. Later, Record passed the designs on to Clico Tooling, who later sold out to Thomas Flinn. Thomas Flinn produces the Clifton planes today. Modern Clifton planes, while admittedly not as decorative as the highly embellished Preston tools, are actually machined to higher tolerances. We think every shop should have at least one Clifton shoulder plane.

Clifton 410 Shoulder/Rebate Plane
The one metal plane you would have found in every 19th Century English cabinetmaker's box would be a rebate plane or a shoulder plane. Unlike the 19th Century planes, the Clifton shoulder planes offer a high precision adjustment mechanism that can make life a lot easier for the casual user. This plane is a 11/16" wide version of the classic Preston shoulder plane. $239.95
