Clifton - Cap Iron One Piece Chipbreaker - 2 3/8in (60mm) will fit  No 4 1/2, No 5 1/2, No 6 and No 7 Planes.  The main section is flat and screws to the face of the blade, doubling the blade's thickness without imposing any bending stresses (common in traditional bent chipbreakers). 

Made from made from vacuum toughened and hardened 01 steel and has an approximate thickness of 3.6mm and clamped flat against the blade, producing a significant vibration damping effect, similar to a laminated blade.

The leading edge is worked at 22 degrees to help the fibres separate from the timber with a clean break leading it through the plane's mouth. The face of the chip breaker's tip is machined with a 5 degrees undercut to ensure an intimate fit with the plane blade preventing any shavings from trapping between the two surfaces where they meet. 

Fitting a new chipbreaker is usually the quickest and most economical way to improve a plane's performance along with a good quality blade.

Clifton's extra long screw is included and designed for use with thicker replacement plane blades. 

The Clifton one piece cap iron will fit almost any brand of plane! Including Woodriver, Record & Stanley.
