A new delicate plane brought to you by Clifton. The 400 Shoulder Rebate Plane has a fine mouth for cabinetmakers and those more demanding woodworkers wanting fine shavings in their precision work. The body is machined from quality grey iron casting, accurately machined and precision ground on the sole and the sides.
The cutting iron seats smoothly onto machined pads and fits snugly into the body of the plane and held in by a Walnut wedge. Adjustment of the cutting iron is done in the traditional manner by tapping the end of the cutting iron and locking the Rosewood wedge in place. The finish is Bright Ground.
Cutter: 7/16" (11mm) wide - High Quality Oil Hardened Tool Steel
59-61 Rockwell "C" Hardness
Cutting edge ground to 25 deg. Primary and 30 deg. Secondary.
