The Clifton Bench Plane No. 5-1/2 has a blade width of 2-3/8"; weight is 6.83 lbs.; length is 15".

The No. 5-1/2 is a larger version of the No. 5 with more width, length and heft. This additional size increases stability, making it a slightly better plane for jointing tasks and smoothing large surfaces.


Clifton Bench Planes are made in Sheffield, UK, from the finest materials. The frog and frog seating in the body of these planes are based on the Bedrock design, meaning the seating pad in the body is full face, fully machined to mate with an equivalent full face, with a fully machined underside of the frog. This ensures absolute stability of the frog, providing a firm and solid base for the cutting iron. The Bedrock design is probably the most rigid and effective clamping mechanism of any bench plane available.

  • Blade width is 2-3/8"; weight is 6.83 lbs.; length is 15"
  • Body and frog machined from gray cast iron
  • Commonly referred to as a Wide Jack Plane
