Record Combination Plane No. 050

record 050

The Record 050 combination plane is a versatile plane capable of carrying out many jobs required in cabinet making and joinery:

  1. Plough
  2. Dado
  3. Tongue and groove
  4. Bead
  5. Centre bead
  6. Rabbet and fillester

These functions are carried out using the 15 tungsten steel cutters which came with this plane as standard.

The 050 is fitted with spurs for cross grain work, an adjustable depth stop and an adjustable double arm bridged fence which can be increased in depth by screwing on a hardwood fillet through the holes provided.

The Record 050 combination plane is 9 1/2" (24.2cm) in length and weighs approximately 1.81kg (3 1/2lb).


What Is The Difference Between the Record 050 and the 050A?

The only differences between the Record 050 and the Reocrd 050A models are the 050A carries about 1/4lb extra weight from the addition of a narrow cutter clamping bracket and additional 1/8" (3mm) and 3/16" (4mm) additional plough cutters.

These three extra parts could be bought by owners of the Record 050 combination plane as an upgrade converting their 050 into an 050A. These parts allowed the user to make narrower grooves than the standard cutters allowed.

Plane Use

The Record 050 combination plane is used for ploughing, tonguing and grooving, dadoing, beading, centre beading, rabbeting and fillestering.
