I have a Stanley #40 that was resurrected by Jim Reed which he graciously gave me, it came with his famous “reed-master” blade. I also have a #5 Stanley set up with a heavy cambered blade. I do like the scrub plane a lot small light and is perfect for the type of work I work on. Unfortunately I don’t have access to a lot of rough wood except for the occasional pallet I pick up.
