I have built up my hand plane collection significantly recently to include a 3 and a 7 stanley bailey, a 5 wood river, a no 4 shelton (not my favorite), a veritas scraper plane, and a wood river low angle block plane. So far Ive done a good bit of jointing some larger panels (24" and wider). I do not have a power planer bc of space limits, the cost, the size of my panels, the though of sharpening the blades, and the fact that I like using hand tools. 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?
