Just got my hands on this, not liking the handle to much, but it works really well, and the set up is real easy.
Ok tidy the workshop today, than a bit play, I mean practice 🙂

Nice one Ken 😉
I have just received my modern Record 050 combination plane and I have no idea how to setup the depth plates. If i slacken the depth screws the depth plate descends loosely and seems useless.

You are talking about the depth stop that controls how deep the grove will be, correct?
I have a “modern” Stanley combination plane that is not unlike the Record. When you adjust the depth stop, you need to have the plane turned on its side so the stop does not slip down. Use the end of a ruler to measure the depth as the ruler nudges the depth stop up to the desired depth. If you lightly snug down the screw, you should be able to nudge the stop in small increments before you tighten the screw all the way.
Here is a scan of the 050C manual if you do not have one:
By the way: Next time your question may get more views if you create a new thread with something like “Record 050 combination plane Depth Stop problem” in the topic line.

I found a Stanley 45 about a year ago and I really like it. I was fortunate to find one with all the original irons and attachments. It was even in the original box. However the irons are pretty simple and I would think that most handy people could make them. I’ve been very pleased it and have had no issues. I do have a Record 043 and it’s handy as well but not as comfortable in the hand if you have to do a great amount of work with it.
Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.
Just got ahold of a Record 044 last week, great condition with all 8 cutters. Though the cutters do need some grinding and honing. But got a couple into workable condition and used it to make one of my dovetail pencil boxes. It’s a blast to use. Looking forward to finding more uses for it.
