Record 778 Review By: I.Ball


Manufacturer: Record

Plane Type: Duplex Rabbet and Fillister

Model No: 778

The Record plane number 778 is a duplex rabbet and fillister plane from the Record Tools rabbet plane range.

The Record 778 at a glance looks like the Record 078 however on closer inspection there is a couple of subtle but useful differences:

- The fence on the Record 778 has two arms, opposed to the one arm on the Record 078.

- The fence is longer.

- The arms on the Record 778 pass right through the body, opposed to the Record 078 having the arm screw into the body.

- The Record 778 has been given a blade adjuster which locates with the top of the blade, opposed to the lever adjuster found on the Record 078.

For these reasons the Record 778 is known as the Record improved rabbet plane no. 778.

The purpose of the arm modification was to create an ultra stable fence.

The purpose of the blade adjustment mechanism change was to combat reports that some users had a tendancy of resting their thumb on the Record 078 blade adjusting lever which sometimes resulted in the lever very slightly moving and as such altering the cut.

Please see the Record 078 review for the core details of the Record 778 other than the differences highlighted above.
