I have a couple dunlops and they work just fine. I have one with a stamped steel frog it worked ok but now is a scrub plane and it works great for that. So tune that one up and practice sharpening the blade and getting the chip breaker flat. You will make mistakes but that is how we learn. $10 for a learning experience is a cheap price to pay. Watch some Paul sellers videos on YouTube I also like woodworking masterclass the host uses English and Japanese planes. Anyways just my two cents I just don’t see why people recommend expensive planes as first planes. Kind of like a car your first car is something older and cheaper that you learn about not a Porsche or Lamborghini as a first car.
