Irwin Record 2" Smoothing Plane
I am a time served joiner, now retired and have used top quality planes all my time. Buying a cheaper and smaller smoother worried me a bit but this plane is very good value and works well. It's a little narrow for large smoothing jobs but fine for general use. The handle is on the short side and may not suit large hands but this isn't a major problem.
Nicely made and solid body with good quality fittings apart from the alignment lever which is a bit cheap looking but works fine. You are going to pay well over twice the price for craftsman quality and if you aren't a pro using a plane every day, why would you? This does a perfectly good job.

Great Value Plane
I purchased this to plane down a door. Good solid feel and easy to set up. This is a good, solid plane at a great price.

Perfect for what I needed
This is a good quality plane for my needs and well worth the money. I am a DIYer, and I guess I could have gotten a higher quality plane if I knew it, but for much more cash.
This is great value, I have used it several times to plane doors and frames to get that smooth finish for final sanding. Does the job. Couldn't ask for more! And I haven't needed to sharpen it yet after about 30 uses at least!
