The Edward Preston shoulder rebate plane number 1368 is a stylish, iconic looking plane with elaborately designed sides which incorporate the Edward Preston Two Cherries EP logo.

The Edward Preston 1368 plane was sold in four different sizes:

  • 5 inch x 5/8 inch
  • 8 1/4 inch x 1 inch
  • 8 1/4 inch x 1 1/4 inch
  • 8 1/4 inch x 1 1/2 inch

The 1368 shoulder plane hasn't a model number marked on the plane, the plane is however advertised with this number in the Edward Preston trade catalogue(s). This number is probably more of a catalogue number rather than the actual model number however this plane is sometimes referred to using this number for a specific identification.

This plane can be seen today in different guises under different manufacturer names. Once Edward Preston ceased business the shoulder planes were taken over by the Record range of tools. The Record range of these tools were then taken over by the Clifton shoulder plane range.
