What Brandon said – run, do not walk, from the home center. If money is tight, go the vintage route – there are a few people around LJ (DonW comes to mind) that can sell you a nicely tuned Stanley that will last generations for about the same kind of money that you will blow on a plane-shaped object from a manufacturer like Footprint. If money is really tight, find a decent untuned one, rehab it – I guarantee you it will be faster and cheaper than starting from a new one bought at a home center.

Trying to get a perfect finish on a dining room table with one of those pieces of junk would constitute cruel and unusual punishment…
