Clifton is known for crafting some of the finest shoulder rabbet (rebate) planes on the market today. Clifton offers premium quality planes at a reasonable price. The No. 410 Shoulder Rabbet Plane by Clifton is a narrow (11/16"), light and highly accurate shoulder rabbet plane based on the design of the classic Preston series of the early 1900's. With it's exceptionally fine mouth, you will find this plane to be an excellent choice for trimming rabbets, tenons and other fine joinery details.
The No. 410 is finely crafted and carefully machined to a high standard. The 5 3/8" long body is made from quality grey iron casting and precision ground on the sole and sides. The lever arm is made of unbreakable malleable iron and fits snugly into the body of the plane. The iron sits smoothly onto the machined pads in the body (19 degree bed angle) and is easily adjusted by means of a screw. The iron, featuring a 25 degree bevel, is made from high quality oil hardened tool steel (Rc 59 - 61). Crafted in England to an excellent level of precision and finish. Weight 1 1/4 lbs.
