    I, too, have the LN Scrub and it has been excellent for taking things down.

It is cheap < $100 USD and will last decades, just take a look at Tom's photo of his, mine is about the same age and looks about the same I just don't have any photos of it.

    BTW, I agree with Andrew, there are jobs for a scrub plane in any shop even one that is mostly power.

    All three of my scrub planes, one #40 and two others set up as scrub planes, cost less than $65. All three of them have already lasted for decades.

    The skinny plane is narrower for sure, but you can take a significantly deeper cut.

    Jim,

    I have both the ECE and a, I think, #40, along with a heavy cambered open mouth #5. There is a Philly Plane Jack with a heavy camber as well in the mix. Of all of 'em when a scrub is needed the ECE is the one I reach for, it is light with wood on wood and the correct size and shape to work high areas down easily and quickly. Of course as with all things wood, YMMV.
