Note that of these planes, the scrub is the only one shipped with a pre ground camber. A jack (#5) can be sharpened with different degrees of camber. The more aggressive the camber the more aggressive the cut.

I’ve got a #40 scrub, and its fun to use, but I doubt you’d need it for what your trying to do.

I’d grab a jack with a medium camber and give it a try. Its one time I would even agree with having multiple blades for a single plane.
