I have recently had a renewed interest in using hand tools for my own projects and enjoyment. I am very fortunate that we have a very wide selection of old tools to choose from. We still have may of our family’s old tools in secure storage. The first tool I wanted to use is the record 45 multi-plane . For my project I am going to need to make some grooves and rebates. The great thing with the record multi-plane is that you can do grooving, rebating and moulding work all with one plane. I have sharpened up the cutters that I need and look forward to trying it out. I will add a few photos of the plane in use soon and some more details on the project I am working on in my spare time.
