Edward Preston Shoulder Plane 1367

The number 1367 Edward Preston shoulder rebate plane is another of the inconic Preston planes with decorative detailing on the sides of the plane incorporating the EP two cherries Edward Preston logo.

This plane used a Rosewood wedge for holding the blade in position. This design bridged the gap between the traditionalist who used wooden wedged planes, and Edward Preston's ultra modern 1368 shoulder plane with its shaped lever cap with securing screw.

This plane was priced in trade catalogues at the same price as the 1368 shoulder plane showing this was not intended as a cheaper model, it was purely intended to cater for those who liked securing the blade with the use of a wedge.

At, at-least half the price, the 1367 plane was also intended as a cheaper version to the Preston dovetail shoulder plane range and the rival dovetail shoulder planes made by makers such as Norris.

From what I have observed, the 1367 planes appear more often than the Edward Preston dovetail shoulder planes however less often than the 1368 shoulder planes. There is certainly not a great abundance of these planes, especially in very good condition.

This shoulder plane was Nickel plated which due to their age often means you find these planes with some loss of plating.

For me, this is the most aesthetically pleasing design of all of the Edward Preston plane designs.


Plane Use

The Preston 1367 shoulder plane is primarily used for fine and accurate work on shoulders.

Plane Markings

What To Watch Out For
