If you have a number 5 jack plane I would probably look at getting a smooth plane – either an old Stanley no.4 or a new LN or Veritas if you have the money.

I’d consider a router plane – this is the specialist tool I use the most in my shop by a mile and it is relatively inexpensive compared to smooth planes.

obviously if you are doing specialist work this advise would change!
