The Verdict

A basic but useful little bullnose plane for its budget price. The blade adjustment on the Record no. 075 is made by hand. The plane can get in close to corners and has an adjustable mouth.

Review By: I.Ball

Manufacturer: Record

Plane Type: Bullnose

Model No: 075

The Record 075 plane is a small 10cm long, two-piece bullnose rebate plane.

The plane is made-up of an upper blue coloured section and a lower cast iron section. The bottom half of the lower section is exposed natural steel, the top half of the lower section has the blue Record japanned finish.

The front of the 075 plane has a curved nose with a window to the cutting area.

The plane is designed with it's blade positioned very close to the end of the plane with only a short sole in front of the blade's cutting edge. This allows the plane to be used almost all of the way into a corner.

The plane blade's cutting edge spans the full width of the plane with the bevel edge side facing upwards.

The mouth's opening can be adjusted by loosening the large screw at the top of the plane, located just behind the top part of the blade. This screw is also used to adjust the depth of the cut by hand. The setting of this Record bullnose plane's mouth and the blade is done manually without the use of fine adjustment mechanisms.

The Record 075 bull-nose plane is almost identical to the Edward Preston 75 plane and the Stanley 75 plane, the only real difference being the colour and the markings.
