Do you have a preference for any particular type of Plough or Combination Plane?Anonymous23 November 2012 at 9:42 am #3731
Short answer, no I don’t own one as yet. 😉Anonymous23 November 2012 at 9:55 am #3732
Plans are afoot, plus a few spare blades my friend 😉Anonymous23 November 2012 at 7:23 pm #3749
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. 🙂 I love using mine when I’m in the zone 🙂Anonymous23 November 2012 at 7:27 pm #3750
Record 043’s are little beauties 🙂 Did you manage to buy one with single or double fence rods? Two models were made and the second rod was a later addition to try and keep the 043 in balance with the 044 🙂
I’ve not tried a Veritas plough plane, but can imagine it’s well made and a good user plane. 🙂Anonymous23 November 2012 at 7:28 pm #3751
Nice one 🙂Anonymous23 November 2012 at 7:29 pm #3752
All I can recommend is for you to take your time planning your purchase and try before you buy whenever possible. 🙂
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 🙂 Always the worry with ebay and fuzzy pictures 🙂

I couldn’t agree more with Ron regarding the 45/045 combination plane, as Record’s 405 is among my favourites. 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. 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 🙂 I’ll try and post pictures of my selection later.
