Put my vote in for the #7. It’s a great jointer and I actually find myself using it more often for jack-type work over the #5. The length & heft helps me with flattening obliquely relative to the grain. I wouldn’t rush out & buy a #8 yet and the #5’s a more than reasonable starting point. Good luck!
