I had one plane where the old nicad pack got corroded and the corrosion moved up the copper wire into the on/off switch too. I had to switch tools for the actual divided storage dados as you can see above.
If you can afford multiple dedicated planes, then I recommend that you actually purchase the dedicated planes over a combination plane (especially a plow plane, rabbet plane, & matched planes/tongue & groove plane). When it comes to sharpening my chisels and plane irons, having a convenient worksurface and handy storage for all my supplies is always a challenge.
I think I can write that the humidity percentage (relative to saturation) should not exceed about 70% to 80% for long time storage like longer or much longer than four months. It can be used for cutting grooves, rabbets, shoulders, and other tasks, but I still recommend to start off purchasing a dedicated tongue & groove plane, molding planes, & beading planes (all mentioned below) in addition to a Stanley 45 combination plane.

I’m working on building up my collection but I don’t have your storage problems yet. The 30 Year WOOD Magazine Collection on USB thumb drive will be available soon.
I’ve written a lot about the core ideas behind good workbench design (check out Workbenches: From Design & Theory to Construction and Use ” or The Workbench Design Book ”). But I haven’t written much about the core principles of tool storage – chests, cabinets totes and racks. After giving this idea more thought I concluded that a shallow rectangular shaped cupboard would most likely provide more efficient storage.

I had one plane where the old nicad pack got corroded and the corrosion moved up the copper wire into the on/off switch too. Cut and plane stiles and rails for the rack’s frame to 1-inch thick and 1 1/4-inches wide.
