Edward Preston 1368 Plane Review By: I.Ball

Manufacturer: Edward Preston

Plane Type: Shoulder Rebate

Model No: 1368


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 Preston 1368 has a cutter which spans the full width of the plane. The blade is secured in place with the use of a curvacious lever cap which locks in place with the use of a securing screw underneath the lever cap.

The depth at which the blade cuts can be adjusted using the fine adjustment adjuster wheel/screw at the rear of the plane. The cutter on these planes are bed on a low angle.

The Preston 1368 had a nickel plating finish.

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.

"E.Preston & Sons, Trade Mark, EP" (EP cherry trade mark) - This is located on a plate at the very front (nose) of the plane. This mark is not always present.

"Just stumbled across your website and an absolute treasure trove of information. I was recently given an old Stanley 110 block plane and wanted to know more about it. Your website told me everything I needed to know.

But there is so much more to read. I forsee me spending a lot of time just reading page after page. I can appreciate how much time this will have taken to put together.

I just wanted to let you know that your hard work is appreciated."
