Don W for the win on this… All my planes are vintage, mostly picked up in yard sales or antique shops. I have a #7c picked up for free from an Amish friend. I have 3 #4s one sharpened with a camber, one normal, and I ordered the scraper insert for Xmass. I have a #220 and a #9, both picked up for 25$ or less. I got the Veritas Sharpening jig, a old granite tile and some sandpaper. ? I have a wood Rebate plane of unknown origin.

I have attempted to use them, I’m still new at this and have no training, and find in some cases its just a hell of a lot faster and safer due to stock size than using my jointer or setting the saw up for a lap joint.
