After looking around for a metal jointer plane for a while, I ran across an old Ohio tools 22” woodie. I admit, it took a bit of a learning curve, some sole flattening ( a much quicker job on a woodie), and some small adjustments to the wedge…but I learned how to use it, and have since stopped looking for a metal jointer. I have a plane that works well, weighs less than a metal plane, has a gigantic thick tapered iron, and will be easily flattened again when the time comes.

I use a Stanley #5 jack, #3 smoother, and metal Stanley block plane, but am completely satisfied with a wooden jointer.

-- I'm strictly hand-tool only...unless the power tool is faster and easier!
