Newbie looking for my first #5 jack plane
I’m new to this stuff, but quickly got obsessed with learning about traditional techniques and tools. (And anyway I have limited space and funds, so probably won’t ever have power jointer/planer machines.) But I’ve been doing research and now I’m looking to buy my first #5 jack plane. The identification key on this site has been great for knowing the type/year of planes I see on eBay, thanks! But the prices on eBay are often high. Any chance someone on here has an extra #5 jack plane collecting dust, that they’re willing to sell for a fair price? I’m in NY, but happy to pay shipping. And happy to do some restoration to an old tool, if necessary. Thanks for any tips!
