The Record 102

The Record No.102 is a doppelgänger of the Stanley No.102. Manufactured from 1932 until 1974 it is a non-adjustable block plane. The blade is held in position by a nickel-plated knurled wheel, which sets is apart from its Stanley brethren, who often had a much flimsier mechanism. The Stanley 102 in comparison was a more poorly constructed plane, with japanning covering the entire plane save the sole. The body casting itself was very similar including the circular-depression (for the index finger) at the toe of the plane in lieu of a knob. The Record No. 0102 block plane is non-adjustable in either depth of cut or lateral movement.
