Record 019 Plane Review By: I.Ball

Manufacturer: Record

Plane Type: Block

Model No: 019


The Record 019 block plane is part of the Record knuckle block plane range.

The Record 019 is almost identical to the Record 018 plane with the main difference being the 019 is 7 inches long in contrast to the 018 being 6 inches in length. Other minor differences include the weight and the plane markings.

Another difference between the two planes on a historical sense is the 019 had a much shorter production run of approximately 9 years in the 1930's to early 1940's. The output of this production may have further been reduced when consideration is taken to the fact World War II started in 1939.

To see the core details of this plane (other than plane length, weight and markings) refer to the Record 018 plane review.

"Just stumbled across your website and an absolute treasure trove of information. I was recently given an old Stanley 110 block plane and wanted to know more about it. Your website told me everything I needed to know.

But there is so much more to read. I forsee me spending a lot of time just reading page after page. I can appreciate how much time this will have taken to put together.

I just wanted to let you know that your hard work is appreciated."
