Clifton No 5-1/2 Heavy Jack Plane


The Clifton No 5½ heavy jack plane is a slightly longer, wider and heavier version of the Clifton No 5 and used for the same wide range of applications.

The Clifton range of bench planes retain the full sweeping curve of the side rails from the original Bedrocks; the strengthening webs however were a later addition and although probably superfluous on a casting this thick they certainly make the castings of Clifton planes a global benchmark for stiffness.

Now fitted with walnut handles.

Please note: This is the new Clifton version which no longer has a polished lever cap.
