I agree with bandit. You can adjust a Jack to smooth and you can joint with it if you are careful where you plane (being shorter than a jointer, it can follow the hills and valleys instead of leveling them out). As to your brand question, I have LN, Record, Stanley and a couple of others. They can all be “tuned” to perform well, but a LN or Veritas plane will require way less “tuning” than the others. I actually ended up flattening my slabs with a router, worked great, if a little noisy <g>.
