My first bench plane arrived today, an antique Stanley #5.
Anybody have any favorite plane reference material, on or off-line,
that they would like to recommend? I'm looking to overhaul this baby,
flatten the sole, and get it cutting super smoothly.
Here are some of my links to plane tuning sites, etc.

Before you go to the trouble of flattening the sole, why not give it a
try as is? Sharpen the iron and go for it on a piece of scrap. You
might find it works fine, which will allow you to spend your time
planing instead of preparing to plane. Good luck.
