Record 044C HangerThe remaining handplane that I wanted to have constant access to without having to search through cardboard boxes is the much used Record 044C. I decided that it would be hung by its fence rods on the deep inside door. I had to arrange it so the handle would not hit any of the planes already mounted in the cabinet as clearance is tight. In practice this was easy to determine and I fabricated a hanger from some scrap beech and walnut.
As you can see it is a very simple hanging bracket comprising a slot running at around 45 degrees with sufficient clearance to allow the bars of the fence assembly to simply engage.
The planes center of gravity holds it straight and parallel to the face of the door.
