Wade, i hear about wanting to buy one that’s ready to go. I bought nice, new planes to begin with. But once I learned my way around them, I love the vintage planes. It’s tough to ignore their value.
As far as flattening a benchtop, I would jump on DonW's #8 if you can swing it. Costs a little more to get one that restored nicely, but not near as much as an LN.
Same sort of plane I used to flatten my bench. Ohh that’s my $175 bench in the background. It was never really flat because I didn’t know how to wield a plane in those days;-)
