Record Block Plane No. 0220

record 0220

The Record 0220 block plane is similar in appearance to the 09 1/2 block plane, with the hooded lever cap. This plane is a more basic model in comparison, with a different adjustment screw and a wooden front knob. The 0220 was one of the block planes which was produced for the longest period of time. The 0110 block plane was another which was produced during exactly the same period of time. The only Record block plane which has been manufactured for a longer length of time is the 09 1/2 which is still being made today (the 09 1/2 today is the Irwin Record 09 1/2).

The 0220 block plane is 7" (17.8cm) in length, weighs approximately 0.62kg (1 3/8lb) and is fitted with a 1 5/8" (4.2cm) blade.

Plane Use

The Record 0220 block plane is primarily used for end grain work, they are also used for finishing work.
