Record 02C Plane Review By: I.Ball

Manufacturer: Record

Plane Type: Smoothing

Model No: 02C

The Record smoothing plane number 02C is a smoothing plane which is the smallest of the Record smoothing planes at 7 1/4 inch (18.4cm) in length.

The 02C model is identical to the Record 02 plane with the difference being the sole of the 02C is corrugated; a series of parallel grooves running the length of the sole.

The plane is constructed from high grade cast iron with a crucible cast tungsten steel cutter and a lever cap made with high grade cast iron with a plated finish. The plane sported a Rosewood rear handle and front knob.

The Record 02C plane was produced for a period of 10 years through the 1930's to the early 1940's until production stopped during World War II.
