Should I just get over my picky hang ups and get a planer or could I get a scrub plane and use it to hog off the larger amounts of wood that I sometimes have to deal with in jointing? Whats the general opinion of the scrub plane out there?
Oh boy, two hot button topics in one post, power vs hand planing and scrub plane.

A recent thread on scrub planes may help you decide whether to get a scrub plane, or just another blade.


Power planing vs hand planing is a personal preference.

I have a number of hand planes. I love using my hand planes, but I like being able to flatten wide boards with my power planer.
