Being used by a someone as a hobby, I wouldn’t worry about any kind of failure for a very long time. The two areas that would be the most susceptible to premature failure would be the bearings and the centrifugal switch. Both can be replaced without requiring a new motor and at a very small fraction of what a new motor would cost. In all honesty, unless the motor has been sitting in a pile of sawdust its whole life it’s very unlikely even the most dedicated part time woodworker would be able to use up any more than a small percentage of the motor’s cerall life in just 12 years. You’ll be very happy with the saw and $600 sounds like an excellent deal also.
