    Looking for a usable router plane; not interested in its looks as long as it works properly. Would even consider several “parts” planes that could be combined into one usable one.

    I’ve had great luck on ebay searching for such tools.

    If you’re not into ebay, I like http://hyperkitten.com/tools/ForSale/Tools_FS.php, but he only updates the listings once a month, and the tools that are listed are pretty different each month.

    Jim Bode tools also appears to have a lot of nice stuff: http://www.jimbodetools.com/Planes-c3/ I’ve never bought from him, so can’t comment on the experience.

    Good luck!

    You could also make one for about $15-20. Check out John Wilson’s book Making Wood Tools 2ed. You can get a kindle version of the book for about $11, or hardcover for around $40.

    You can also try Paul Sellers’ poor man’s router plane.  It’s basically a chisel mounted in a wooden block. Simple, but it works.
