The Verdict

Review By: I.Ball

Manufacturer: Record

Plane Type: Scrub

Model No: 400 1/2

The Record number 400 1/2 is commonly known as the Record scrub plane.

The Record number 400 1/2's main distinctive features are that it is a narrow, simplified bench plane with a very open mouth with Record blue finish.

The open mouth allows large amounts of shavings to pass through it as it works a piece of timber.

This feature makes the plane suited to carrying out rougher work and removing lots of stock quickly.

The Record scrub plane is fitted with a hardwood rear handle, hardwood front knob, screw cap and single iron.

The plane blade is ground with a round edge to ensure the plane can cope with heavy work.
