Rare PRESTON 1368D Shoulder Plane *SOLD*
A rare nickel plated patent adjustable PRESTON 1368D shoulder rebate plane.
The PRESTON 1368 range was made up of 5 different size planes from the 5 inch long 5/8 inch wide No.1368 through to the largest No.1368D at 81/4 inches long and 11/2 inches wide.
Fully nickle plated, these planes had PRESTON's patent cutter adjustment.
This 1368D example is fitted with a 11/2 inch wide cutter marked 'PRESTON BIRMM ENG. PATENT' with the EP trade mark.
Also marked 'PATENT' on the left side under the 'EP' trade mark which is cast into both sides of the main body.
The rectangular plate at the toe is marked 'E.PRESTON & SONS BIRMM ENG.' with the EP trade mark. This plate covers the weight reducing hollow in the front casting.
The underside of the lever, inside of the main body and the back of the cutter are all stamped '6'.
Some minor surface pitting and staining spots to the left side.
All parts move freely and tighten securely.
A nice example of this hard to find plane.
