Clifton No 5 Jack Plane

Originally designed for trimming the crests off a scrub planed board the Clifton No 5 jack plane has become the all rounder of the modern workshop.

At just a hair under 14" long it is a very useful plane for flattening out problems like cupping, bowing and twist that can occur as the internal stresses are released when a board is sawn. The No. 5 is also commonly used for removing snipe, scalloping and saw marks.

The mass and balance of the Clifton No. 5 also make it a very effective plane to use with a shooting board.

Very Good Quality & Performance
I've been using my new no5 for a couple of weeks now and it is a joy to use. The Bedrock frog and thick iron and cap iron makes for a really solid tool. Planing results have been superb on a variety of woods and grains. With a bit of work the iron was honed to a really nice edge, producing 0.0005" full width shavings, and the edge seems to keep well.

I wanted to buy British and i havent been disappointed with this plane. I also have Clifton Block & Shoulder planes which are equally superb and so this manufacturer does seem to be excellent.

Outstanding quality
When I first saw it, I immediately saw the craftmanship that was put in making the plane. I really like the thick iron. When planing you feel the sturdiness, it lays perfect in my mid-sized hands. No negative things to mention. But ofcourse, if you want quality these days, you'll pay for it.
