I have a Stanley Bailey No. 3 which I bought new in the 90’s. After years of inactivity (other than rust growth) I’m bringing it back to life following Paul’s Restoration video. My intent is to make it my smoothing plane.
However, I’m thinking at buying a No. 4 and converting the No. 3 to a dedicated scrub plane per Paul’s video on making a scrub iron.
My question is; should I keep the No. 3 as a smoothing plane and convert a No. 4 to the scrub? My thinking is the No. 4 should be heavier and so be more aggressive than the No. 3.
Thanks in advance.

First met Paul when he lived is Texas. So happy he is active online. We are all blessed for his generosity.
Would be happy to meet anyone in the Austin area who also follows Paul's work.
