The Verdict

Record 07SS Review By: I.Ball


Manufacturer: Record

Plane Type: Jointer

Model No: 07SS

The Record jointer plane number 07SS (Stay Set) is identical to the Record 07 plane with the exception of the cap iron design and the lever cap markings.

The "SS" part of the model name stands for "Stay Set".

The Record "Stay Set" cap iron was a two-piece cap iron which consisted of an upper piece and a lower piece (deflector).

The main advantage of the SS cap iron is that the lower piece can be quickly and easily removed/replaced without the need to remove/replace the whole cap iron.

As such the blade can be sharpened/re-ground with only the very occasional need to reposition the upper part slightly. Overall this is a great time saver.

The Record SS planes were sold with a lever cap marked 'SS'.

The SS cap iron was advertised as being 'chatter proof guaranteed'. Record pointed out this was due to the additional third pressure point which the common one-piece cap irons didn't have.

When buying a secondhand Record 07 SS plane, it is well worth checking the two piece cap iron is present below the SS lever cap as from experience, not checking this can lead to disappointment.
