Last year I started with a new Clifton #5 Jack Plane, and then added an Anant Kamal #4. I just finished flattening the soles and sharpening the blades on a new Stanley 60 1/2 low angle block plane, and vintage #4 and #5 Stanley/Bailey planes that I had recently found at an Antique store.

When I get back up to the Upper Peninsula, I have a Stanley/Bailey #6 fore plane, and a #4 Stanley/Bailey smoothing plane that have been waiting patiently all winter to be re-furbed.

I’m looking for a #7 jointer plane. However I don’t intend to be a collector. These are tools that are going to be put to work.
