If your wallet allows, Lee Valley has just released the Veritas Shooting Plane. A beauty by the reviews I have read.

$30 off for the next week.

If you cannot afford and need to use a bench plane, first check which of your vintage bench planes have a side which is orthogonal (90 deg) to the sole.

My first bench plane was a Record No. 5 purchased in late 1990's. When I used this in a shooting board I built, the ends were not coming out orthogonal. Turned out the right side of the plane was machined off by a degree or so. Happened to be the side I needed to have down on the shooting board. Crap. Lesson learned.
