Record Side Rebate Plane No. 2506S

record 2506S

The Record 2506S is a very useful plane for the trimming of rebates and joints, this allows for fine and accurate work. The plane is set with a blade on eash side so it can be used in a left or right handed situation. The front nose piece can be removed so that trimming / planing can be right-up to the end of rebates etc. The blades are set at a very low angle to give a fine cut, the blades are secured with a bridging piece which is held by a screw to centre.

The Record 2506S, has a depth stop which fits to the base by means of a screw with a knob, this can be used for adjusting the depth of the rabbet from the fall of the work.

The Record 2506S side rebate plane is 4 1/4" (10.7cm) in length, weighs approximately 0.34kg (3/4lb) and has two 1/2" (1.3cm) wide blades.

The 2506S model is almost identical to the 2506, the only difference being the 2506S comes complete with a depth stop.
