Add To Your WishlistEarly RECORD 06 SS Stay Set Fore Plane



A very good 1930s example of the RECORD 06 SS Stay Set fore plane.

Dismantled, cleaned, checked, oiled and reassembled.

Fitted with a straight topped 23/8 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.  A little over 13/4 inches remain below the slot.

This early example has the first pattern lateral lever with no markings and the revolving disc.  The hand peened fitting of the lateral lever wing indicates an early date as production soon changed to leave a criss-cross machine pattern, please see close-up image.  

First pattern frog, screws, Y lever and brass adjusting nut.

Retains the majority of its original blue finish throughout.

The lever cap is marked 'SS RECORD' and retains much of its red background finish to the lettered areas.  Some patchy bubbling to the plating, please see images.

Excellent rosewood handles with the majority of their original lacquer finish and near full trade label to the top of the rear handle.

Previous owner's name 'H.WALKER' to both sides of the rear handle.

A few minor surface knocks, scratches and spots, please see images.

All parts move freely and tighten securely.

18 inches overall length.
