Early RECORD 03 SS Stay Set Smoothing Plane *SOLD*

Code: 2713

A scarce early example of the RECORD 03 SS Stay Set smoothing plane.

Dismantled, cleaned, checked, oiled and reassembled.

This early example has the first pattern lateral lever with no markings and the revolving disc used between 1931 and 1939.  First pattern frog, screws, Y lever and brass adjusting nut.

Fitted with a good length straight topped 13/4 inch RECORD best crucible cast tungsten steel blade iron and the extra thick Stay Set cap iron, marked 'PATENT No 362743', which enables sharpening of the blade without removing the cap iron and eliminates chatter.  13/4 inches remain below the slot. 

The nickel plated lever cap is marked 'SS RECORD' and retains the majority of its red background finish to the lettered areas.

The majority of the original blue finish remains.

Very good rosewood handles with much of their original lacquer finish and near complete trade label on the top of the rear handle.

Some signs of use with minor surface scratches, pitting and staining spots.  There are also a few casting spots, please see images.

All parts move freely and tighten securely.

9 inches overall length.

A very tidy example of an early RECORD plane.
