Ok so I think i am holding off on the LA jack plane for now. I scoured all the antique shops around last week and picked up an old Stanley 5 1/4 for cheap and then on CL found parts of a really old Stanley #3 that I was able to complete using parts if the 5 1/4. I read a few places to look for Pre WW2 Stanley planes but ome place had a WW2 Stanley #7 with the Bakelite knob for a decent price. Is that ok to get? Otherwise the older #7s seem to go for double.
