I’ll echo the vintage sentiment – I picked up a number 4,5,6, and 7 hand plane for less than 100 total. Put in a little elbow grease and they’re wonderful. Ebay is practically overflowing with vintage saws.
You may even check out the ‘gems’ at Harbor Freight – some of their items are perfectly fine. Their blue clamps are good and the pocket hole (you did mention Ana White ;) ) jig there is better built and far cheaper than the Kreg.
