First mistake was selling your old saw. It may have been inadequate in several ways, but at least you had something to use while you looked for a replacement. Now you have squat, and that “Gotta have it now” feeling will keep trying to bite you in the ass.

Second mistake is not knowing what you want. Figure it out. Once you know, then you will be able to jump on a good deal when it comes along without making your third mistake.

Third mistake, asking if it’s a good deal. If it is a great deal, then you will 99 times out of 100 miss the deal because of your hesitation. Read the OWWM rules – particularly #5 – they exist for a reason.

And finally – that PM is overpriced for a contractor saw. It is in nice shape, but you can find nice used cabinet saws for that price most any day. And if you do want a cabinet saw (Unisaw, PM66, etc..) then you are most likely going to need 240v. You may run across a 1.5 or 2hp Unisaw, but they are fairly rare, so you will most likely have to wait longer for one to show up.
