Hello spitfire, I would encourage you to go after the older quality planes, Stanley/Bailey. The planes you scored at that garage sale are bad examples of a good plane, they were made for the weekend carpenter who knew no better. Look for a Stanley 3, 4 and 5, then go on to getting the 7 and maybe an 8. You’ll see a tremendous amount of difference once you have these planes set up right. There are numerous you tube series on taking care of the hand planes. Have fun, make some dust.
