My addiction to hand tools started with a new model Stanley block plane. I bought a standard angle adjustable mouth block plane from a home center. I didn't use it much because frankly it sucked. One day I saw a YouTube video on tuning up a plane. I spent a couple hours flattening the sole, flattening the blade, smoothing all of the machine marks, sharpening, etc... After I was done I hade a tool that could take a whisper thin shaving. When I saw what a plane could actually do, I was hooked. Now only 15 planes later....

I can't remember the exact link, but look for the video on YouTube. It will be worth your time.
