So No 5 planes are for flattening and roughing efficiency. Got you.
You don't need them all! It's just that if you have them you have a bit more choice. You can do almost everything with just a 5 or 5 1/2I am on the way shopping for another plane. This time they are the No 5s.

This wood working hobby costs some money. Saws, drills, jigs, planes and work benches ... and we need to pay for the woods, the sheet materials.
PS the sizes relate to the size of the workpieces rather than to particular functions.
