The Verdict

Review By: I.Ball

Manufacturer: Edward Preston

Plane Type: Smoothing

Model No: 9

The Edward Preston plane number 9 is an early 20th century cast iron smoothing plane.

The plane is fitted with a shaped hardwood handle and front knob. The shape of these are slightly different to the Stanley and Record planes.

The plane has a frog, screw cap and blade adjuster mechanism which is unique to this range of Edward Preston planes.

The Preston number 9 plane was built in direct competition with the Stanley number 4.
