Just have two irons; one cambered and one mostly straight. If you have a separate chip breaker for each of these irons, then swapping them in and out of the plane is fast and easy.

Which is the best plane for a bench?
If you can only have one plane, the No. 5 is a good choice. It’s light enough to use for long periods of time, but the sole is long enough to give you a good reference surface for many straightening and flattening tasks at the bench. I actually keep two No. 5s handy.
