Record Block Plane No. 0101

record 0101

The Record 0101 block plane is a little plane which is only 3 1/2" (8.9cm) in length. This is not adjustable, has a 1" (2.5cm) wide plane cutter and only weighs 0.12kg (1/4lb).

From what we have observed, this seems to be quite a rare plane. This is no doubt due to the its short production run and its age. As a pure speculative guess, I would say a large number of these planes over the years have unfortunately been thrown away, these types of planes which are found today often seem to be in poor conidtion.

Plane Use

The Record 0101 plane is used for small work.

* Note: There is a photograph of the 0101 in the above Record Planecraft books however the photograph is labelled as a 0100. I cannot see any text in these books relating to the 0101. So no need to rush out and buy this book for more info on the Record 0101 block plane.

There are also a few retailer tool catalogues of their time which listed this plane for sale with picture/drawing and snippets of information. We have found it quite facinating looking at some of these and viewing the other tools of the time.
