My 2 cents: No. 5 jack planes/bodies are plentiful and inexpensive. Use this one as a scrub plane as the always on-point Don suggests, and find a different plane to work on polishing up.

I bought a crappy Buck Brothers jack at Home Depot before I knew anything, and it s now my scrub plane, where it s perfectly capable.
