Thanks for all the advice… I think, after looking at Don W’s tools, I think I’m sold on getting a vintage smoother.
It will compliment my trusty #5 nicely…after that, all I need is a shoulder plane, and my plane collection might just be complete. :-)

I hope to go to the WWI marketplace in a few weeks to hold some #3’s and #4’s to find out which feels better in my hand…I’m thinking the 3 might be too small…and I have no idea how anybody uses a #2 or a #1.

-- I'm strictly hand-tool only...unless the power tool is faster and easier!
