... So I know Record were a british company making good quality tools at some point in history… but I’m guessing that their lack of website means they have gone to the wall at some point.
Can anyone enlighten me as to how they’re being manufactured these days??
The reason I ask is I bought a new irwin/record smoother a few months ago and was pleasantly surprised at the quality for the price. Today I picked up a Record jack plane that looks at least 30 years old, and unlike Stanleys, it seems the new Records in the shops are as good quality as they were back made in the day, so I’m curious about the company.
