The Verdict

Review By: I.Ball


Manufacturer: Record

Plane Type: Smoothing

Model No: 03C

The Record smoothing plane number 03C is identical to the Record 03 plane with the difference being the sole of the 03C is corrugated; a series of parallel grooves running the length of the sole.

This type of sole is referred to as a corrugated sole. The 'C' in the model number '3C' stands for 'corrugated'.

The idea behind the corrugated plane is the sole has less friction when planing, particularly as the board becomes true. The smoothness of the planing can be improved further by lubricating the sole with oil/wax etc.
