I’m looking for a decent #4 or #4 1/2. My budget is limited right now due to most of my extra funds going towards my shop that is being built currently. I’d like to stay under $50 but I might be able to stretch it a little. I still have to account for buying stones and what not for sharpening. Since I do have power tools I’m going to have to make my progression into hand tools a slow journey. Based on Josh’s guide, a jack plane looks like the place to start. If it is a plane that needs a little TLC, I am okay with that as well. It would be a good opportunity to get to know the tool better and maintence on it. I would be open to extending the budget just a little more if a low angle (bevel up?) block plane is also available.
