The Record 044 plough plane is a handy sized plane which comes with 8 cutters to satisfy the ploughing requirements of any craftsman.

The plough blades which come with the 044 plane as standard include: 1/8", 3/16", 1/4", 5/16", 3/8", 7/16", 1/2", 9/16". There were four additional sized cutters which could also be purchased at the time of advertisment, these sizes were: 4mm, 6mm, 9mm and 12mm. The standard cutters allow the user to make all of the cuts which can be made with the 043 plough plane plus many more with the use of the greater range of cutters.

The 044 has a double arm adjustable fence which allows for a groove to be cut up to 5 inches (12.7cm) from the edge. The plane can produce grooves with widths ranging from 1/8" to 9/16" and to a depth of 5/8" (1.6cm). The depth stop on the 044 is adjustable and the screw adjustment to the cutter allows accurate and speedy control of the feed.

The Record 044 plough plane is 8 1/2" (21.6cm) in length and weighs approximately 1.36kg (3lb).
