I am in the middle of working on a tool chest which I will post later based on some Paul Sellers plans. Making the drawers required a groove for some 1/4″ plywood. Of course most of us know 1/4″ plywood is not 1/4″ plywood, its actually thinner. So my plan was to file down a iron for the Record 44 to match up to the plywood. Didn’t seem right to do that with an original set so I ordered up a new set from Ebay in the UK. Yep, the UK and they arrived in 7 days! Pricing was still better than buying them from Veritas (could use in the record 43).
Turns out I didn’t need to grind one down, I got away with the 3/16 and a little planing of the panel on the edges. A very nice set of irons for the Record 44 and they fit great! So now my plow planes are all set.
