Is there a similar resource to Patrick's Blood and Gore but for record planes? I find it useful for the different numbers as well as some commentary as to whether they were good/bad/indifferent and the potential problems.

There's nothing to rival Patrick's Blood & Gore, but David Leach's http://www.recordhandplanes.com is probably the best Record site, and there's also http://www.record-planes.com.

Alf's site http://www.cornishworkshop.co.uk/combinationplanes.html has good info on Record (and other) combination planes.

Cheers, Vann.
There's this publication too:

"Record Tools

C & J Hampton Ltd
Sheffield
England

Catalogue No.15"

by Leslie Harrison and published in 2003

ISBN 0 904638 14 6

An excerpt taken from the outside rear cover;

"This is a reprint of the complete 1938 Catalogue No 15 of Record Tools together with an introduction detailing the complete history of the company and its products from its founding by the Hampton Brothers in 1898 up to the present day.

The introduction by Leslie Harrison concentrates on the planes by Record produced from 1931 onwards and includes the aquisition of planes formerly made by Edward Preston and contains details of all planes advertised and produced since 1938. The No. 15 Catalogue was the most comprehensive and representative of the Record line of tools ever produced. The lists and catalogues since then have been largely updates.

Leslie Harrison has been collecting and researching Record planes for years. He has a definitive collection of them and is acknowledged as an authority. He has had full cooperation in this study from Record Tools and the Hawley Collection Trust at Sheffield University."

I hope this helps :)

Up the proverbial creek
Yeah, pretty much all the useful stuff in the reprint is on the recordhandplanes.com site. It's nice to have if you're into catalogue reprints, but if you just want some info on what you're looking at when buying a bench plane or two, probably not worth the bother.
