Which Of The Edward Preston & Sons Planes Made It Into The Record Lineup?


Print Friendly, PDF & Email

When C & J Hampton took over the manufacturing rights for the Edward Preston & Sons line of planes from John Rabone in 1934 (see Record Planes history for more information), there were a number of plane patterns that Record slipped directly into their own production line.

Three planes, the No. 311 Bull-Nose and Shoulder Rabbet Plane and the No. 2506 and No. 2506S Side Rabbet Planes, managed to retain their original Preston product number, whereas the other patterns inherited new product numbers in their move to Record Planes. It is not known at this stage exactly why this was the case.

All of the Record planes that were originally designed, manufactured and marketed by Edward Preston And Sons are listed below, along with their respective product numbers.
