Documenting the addition of my second Record 044 Plough plane to the shop. This one only came with a single cutter and is missing the short rods. This one was made prior to 1951. My other plane is complete with all cutters and both sets of rods.

More info on this plane can be found at the following links.

Handsome little bugger. I like the treatment they did on the handle.

Thanks.

I like the patina on it. Better plane body than my other one.

Very nice plane! I have smaller brother Record 043, but made in USSR. Like this here: http://russianhandplanecentral.blogspot.com/2010/12/record-043.html

Got it without lever cap and screw, but found after half a year these with body and 6 mm cutter. I was very happy about that find.

Wow Wayne, did you find it in this condition or is this after de-rusting etc? A real looker!

I’ve seen your type of plane in photos on the web Hans. Pretty cool little plane. I think there is a brand new one on eBay at the moment. Still in original packing.

Thanks Candy. It is as found in the photos.

Nothing like good accessories for your tools.
