SUPERB!!!!!!!!
Strengths: Blade tilting on the front so no more reaching round the back The cut depth of 104mm Good power cuts any timber
Weaknesses: The trench guide is a bit fiddly And if your using it as a site saw it's a right lump to carry about
Overall: Highly recommended saw! In my opinion head and shoulders above the makita and dewalt equivalent

Clifton No 410 Shoulder Plane

Average Rating
No. of Reviews1
RRP£138.00

Description:

Workshop Heaven
Light, narrow and extremely accurate, the Clifton 410 is perfectly proportioned for one handed use.

At just 11/16" (18mm) wide, the 410 is perfect for cleaning up machined rebates and housing joints as well as trimming tenons.

The cutting iron is considerably thicker than both the Preston original and the later Record versions. It sits on a beautifully machined 18.5 degree bed with the unbreakable malleable iron lever arm applying pressure directly behind the 25 degree bevel. The mouth is exquisitely fine, giving a very high standard of surface finish.

Length 5 1/2" (138mm)
Width 11/16" (18mm)
Mass 1lb 2oz (0.5 Kilos)

SOLID, RELIABLE AND VERY ACCURATE
Strengths: 2 x 3kw motors. A very accurate machine with repeat accuracy out of the top drawer. A saw/ spindle moulder is a very handy package. Able to handle full size sheets. Large format sliding table(2000mm) and excellent crosscut and rip fences. Spindle has reverse and can tilt up to 45 degrees. Excellent after sales service
Weaknesses: None, maybe the large foot print.
Overall: This is the workhorse in my workshop. I have spent a bit of time setting it up. The accuracy and ease of use make it a pleasure to work with. Mine can be switched to a dado head and there is an option for a scoring unit.There is a lot of different configurations to get a machine most suited to individual circumstances. A CD is supplied to help with the setup of all Hammer machines.
