The Record 020C plane is used by cabinet makers, joiners and tradesmen for various circular (concave and convex) applications such as circular table work, frames, cart wheels etc.

The base of the 020C plane is made from flexible spring steel, held at each end by legs fixed to a cast frame. This is adjusted by means of screw adjustment on the central column radius. The blade is held in a frog with cap iron and secured by the lever cap, the same as with the Record bench planes. The blade can be adjusted in and out of the cutting plane by means of the brass wheel nut set behind the frog. The blade can be adjusted laterally by the lever set behind the blade which is fixed to the face of the frog.
