    Do you have a preference for any particular type of Plough or Combination Plane?

    I have a woodie plough, that I’m very much still learning how to tune and use.ย  I bought the body locally with one iron, and bought a complete, almost matched set of irons from Pat Leach.

    I own a Record 043 that I bought on ebay and have used the Veritas plough before. Both work really well. It took a little bit to get the Record to work correctly, as is making an auxiliary fence and such, but now it works just as well as the Veritas.

    I have the Veritas and am very happy with it.

    Hi Eric,

    Depending on how well matched the irons are for your wooden plough plane it’s often possible to have things up and running after a few adjustments to the grooves in the rear of the irons, the top of the rear skate, or the wedge, plus a little wax on the fence beams. ๐Ÿ™‚ ย I love using mine when I’m in the zone ๐Ÿ™‚

    Hi Erik,

    Record 043’s are little beauties ๐Ÿ™‚ ย Did you manage to buy one with single or double fence rods? ย Two models were made and the second rod was a later addition to try and keep the 043 in balance with the 044 ๐Ÿ™‚

    I’ve not tried a Veritas plough plane, but can imagine it’s well made and a good user plane. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Hi Brent,

    All I can recommend is for you to take your time planning your purchase and try before you buy whenever possible. ๐Ÿ™‚

    I have a 45. A 55 and 3 wooden plough planes. If i had it to do all over again, the 45 would be all I need in this area. Care does need to be taken with the honing of the cutters, but it will do what any plough plane will do.

    I have a 45 currently in route from an ebay purchase, looking forward to unboxing it to see if I bought a good one or a lemon ๐Ÿ™‚ย  Always the worry with ebay and fuzzy pictures ๐Ÿ™‚

    I couldn’t agree more with Ron regarding the 45/045 combination plane, as Record’s 405 is among my favourites. ย This doesn’t discount owning others, because having a couple of plough planes can and does help if you’re making a few items and wish to save time changing cutters. ย We used to have my grandfather’s #55 in the workshops, but one of my brothers inherited it when he passed away during the early 80’s.

    My favourites from among my selection are my #405, #050 and #44 ๐Ÿ™‚ ย I’ll try and post pictures of my selection later.
