Clifton No 5 Jack Plane

Average Rating

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

At just a hair under 14" long it is very useful for flattening out problems like cupping, bowing and twist that can occur as the internal stresses are released when a board is sawn. The No5 is also commonly used for removing snipe, scalloping and saw marks.

The 2" blade is usually sharpened to a gentle curve although when fitted with a squared off blade the accurately machined sides of the Clifton No 5 also make it suitable for use with a shooting board.
