I was leaning towards a jointer plane like a #6-7 and there’s a nice Record plane on ebay right now for $65 buy it now. Looks like new. I also found an older stanley 220 block plane that my dad had left which seemed to work ok as I was tinkering with for fun last night. I’d love to have a #5 jack plane, a jointer plane, and a smoothing plane. I don’t mind spending $75-$100 for a decent one because I feel like quality handtools is money well spent, but I have to warm up to the $275 Veritas. I’m sure it’s nice, but I’m gonna get a feel for liking planes before I splurge on that.
