Marples M44 Review By: I.Ball

Manufacturer: Marples

Plane Type: Plough

Model No: M44

The William Marples plough plane number M44 is a high grade cast iron plane with a plated finish. The plane is also spelt as the William Marples plow plane number M44 in some parts of the world.

The plane has an adjustable depth gauge, two arms, a bridge fence, and orginally was supplied with 8 cutters as standard:

   - 1/8"
   - 3/16"
   - 1/4"
   - 5/16"
   - 3/8"

There were also some additional cutters available:
4mm, 6mm, 9mm, 12mm.

The M44 cuts grooves up to 5/8" in depth and up to 5" from the edge of the work.

The selected blade is held in place with the use of the clamp and clamping screw.

The bridged fence can be used on either side of the plane and additionally offers the user a comfortably place to grip the plane.

The plane will cut across end grain as well as with or along the grain.

The William Marples M-44 plough /plow plane and its parts were finished with a nickel plated finish. The nickel plate finish has a dual function of giving the plane a bright appearance while helping prevent the plane from rusting.

The M-44 is almost identical to the Record 044 plough / plow plane.
