Record Bullnose Plane No. 077

record 077

The Record 077 plane is nickel plated, 4" (10.2cm) in length, weighs approximately 0.57kg (1 1/4lb) and has a 1 1/8" (2.9cm) wide tungsten steel blade.

This plane is used for the trimming of joints, this trimming assists with the final fitting of the joint. The Record 077 plane has an advantage over the Record 075 and Record 076 planes because the blade is on a screw adjuster; the blade has a slot which fits over the adjusting nut making setting the blade position more accurate and will ensure it stays set in position.

The blade is shouldered and set at a low angle which requires the bevel to be up on the blade for use. This low angle gives a finer cut. The blade is secured by a shaped lever cap with a tightening screw. The shaping of the lever cap is designed to sit comfortably in the hand.

This plane was presented in a varnished Record wooden box, this box had a sliding lid.
