War Finish RECORD 03 Smoothing Plane *SOLD*

Code: 2832g

A scarce War Finish RECORD 03 small smoothing plane.

Marked 'WAR FINISH' on the lateral lever.

Fitted with a good length straight topped 13/4 inch RECORD best crucible cast tungsten steel blade iron and matching cap iron, 113/16 inches remain below the slot.

Dismantled, cleaned, checked, oiled and reassembled.

This example has the War Finish lateral lever with the revolving disc, first pattern frog, screws, Y lever and brass adjusting nut.

Due to restrictions on the use of nickel during the Second World War, the lever cap and fixings have no plating and patches of the 'blued' finish remain to some including the frog adjusting plate.

The straw finish remains on the lever cap sprung plate as does the majority of the orange/red background to the RECORD trade mark.

Retains the majority of the original blue finish.

Good hardwood handles with almost all of the original lacquer finish intact.

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

All parts move freely and tighten securely.

813/16 inch sole length.
