Record 019 Plane Review By: I.Ball
Category: Old Block Planes
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.
