Category: Old Tempalates
Manufacturer: Clico (Sheffield) Tooling Ltd
Tool Type: Mitre Template
Model No: 470
The Clifton external mitre template was an accurately machined and polished
template for marking mitres.
The template was made from malleable iron; an extremely tough metal.
The longest edge of the template measures 150mm (6 inch).
The Clifton external template was made by the manufacturer Clico for a number of years until 2014 when Thomas Flinn and Co took over the Clifton range.
The Clico Clifton external mitre template was presented in a blue cardboard box with a meshed texture, and a white outline diagram of the tool on the lid.
The Clifton external mitre template has a sibling in the form of the
Clifton internal square and mitre template.
Both the external and internal mitre templates went under the model number 470.
Thomas Flinn sold the Clifton external mitre template for about 6 months when they took on the Clifton range before discontinuing the template due to a low sales history.
I suspect the templates they sold may have been left-over stock from the take-over.
A few of the Thomas Flinn mitre templates were provided in a brown cardboard box opposed to the blue Clico cardboard box.
