Between them, Record Ridgway and Stanley (UK) produced some exceptional woodworker's trim planes. These have now largely disappeared and are sorely missed by craftsmen everywhere.

Now, a firm in India has taken up the task. They sent us their output. We liked what we saw but also sent them out for testing by pros. The results vastly exceeded our expectations. These are very good tools. They are all great value and we highly recommend them all.

The Bullnose Plane (removing the nose produces a Chisel Plane) has the 4" sole and sides ground square and the blade is 1" wide. The adjustable top half allows adjustment for very fine shavings and minimum tear out. It also can be converted to a narrow Chisel Plane.

The Shoulder Plane (a close copy of the old Stanley #92 - a favorite of everyone - has a 5" long sole ground square with the sides and blade that is exceptionally narrow at 3/4". As before, the adjustable top half allows adjustment for very fine shavings and minimum tear out.

The 3-in-1 Shoulder Plane was one of Record's most popular tools. This one is every bit as good. The 6" long body, ground, as usual, square with the sides has a 1-1/8" wide cutter - plus a removable nose (to make a "chisel" plane), an alternative-use short "bullnose" replacement nose and several nose shim. Theses all give this plane the functionality of 3 different tools. Scroll down or Click Here for a customer video review of the Combination Plane.

Not Flat or Square!
Reviewed By:   (Phoenix, AZ) 
Let's start with the positives, the sides were dead flat and parallel. And now onto the part where the manufacture didn't know what they were doing or didn't care to much. The sole was not ground square OR flat! It was 5 thousandths out side to side and 11 thousandths out corner to corner on one side (twisted, don't ask me how they did that one). To make matters worse, when you put the small bullnose attachment on, that was 35 thousandths to long; it was so long it raised the tool right up off of the work! I brought it to a machine shop next door and they milled it dead flat, the only problem with that was it opened the mouth of the plane so much that it is borderline useless... Any other problems you ask? Well, yes! The blade is wider then the plane and is so tightly fit into the body you can't adjust the blade square to the plane without it sticking out of the side of the plane (meaning you can't clean up a tenon or use the square properly). Also, the pin that holds the frog in place was not seated in the frog properly (it is off centered) and will stick out of the side of the plane which means the plane can't be used properly, once again. All in all, it can be made functional with lots and lots of work, but really, it would be easier to just buy a better made, more expensive one somewhere else.

Inadequate Video.
Reviewed By:   (Minneapolis, Minnesota) 
The video review was heavy on preparation of the tool before using it the first time. But it gave very little information about use of the tool as a shoulder plane, which is what I wanted to see.

Great Plane

Great planes to work with. Needed a little touch up before use, but otherwise a great buy.

A Little Gem
Reviewed By:   (Webster City, Iowa) 
Machined beautifully and spectacular balance. This is a tool that you hold in your hand and you know it will do the job.
