Squirrel tail planes from Lee Valley - big mouths great for hogging; http://www.leevalley.com/en/wood/page.aspx?p=57205&cat=1,230,41182

and an upscale flat sole plan for finer work http://www.leevalley.com/en/wood/page.aspx?p=76910&cat=1,230,41182,48942. Tighter mouth. The machining on this one is exceptional!

One can buy all of them for less than the cost of the Bennedeto planes noted above

That little Veritas plane is high up on my wish list. 

Which one? 

I bought a small veritas plane with a (double) convex sole, works okimage.thumb.jpg.24a472aec723c95881707493fe7745a1.jpg

but my favourite by far is the ibex plane, which cuts much more smoothly. Imo the veritas plane is too round, so only good for very wide, deep fluting. image.thumb.jpg.3c09cd15c72c4867b1a866dde15e82a7.jpg

I pretty much only use the ibex finger plane and a block plane.

Not that one, the 40th anniversary pocket plane in stainless, it’s flat
