The Record 0230 block plane is another of the early knuckle joint planes which only saw a relatively short life span. This plane differs from the other knuckle planes (018 and 019) by having a wooden front knob, a different style of adjustment screw, and doesn't have an adjustable mouth. This plane was the cheapest version of the knuckle planes in its day.

The 0230 is 6" (15.3cm) in length, weighs approximately 0.68kg (1 1/2lb) and is fitted with a 1 5/8" (4.2cm) blade.
