After some flea market footwork I acquired a $42 box of rusty old planes that are missing parts. The box included a smoother, which is what I wanted, but it is a Stanley 1244 ‘Defiant’ type, which looks more primitive than the #4’s people usually use. It has a slightly loose rear handle (wiggles a bit laterally) and needs a blade ($22 from ebay, on order). Is this going to be ok as a smoother?
