The adjustable mouth is controlled using the lever under the front knob. Ensure to unscrew the front knob slightly before engaging the lever.

Adjusting the mouth allows forming a wide mouth opening through to a fine mouth opening.

Fine adjustments can be made to the blade to help accurately position the blade in the correct position.

There are two adjusters which help with this. The first is the blade depth adjuster which is located at the rear of the plane in the form of a knurled wheel nut.

The second is the lateral adjuster, located behind the blade with the top of the lever curling over the depth adjuster wheel nut. Ensure the cap is loose before making adjustments.

The plane has a depression either side of the plane body and the depressed finger hole on top of the front knob for grip and comfort.

The Record 015 block plane is fitted with a hooded lever cap which has the markings 'Record' on a red background.
