Here is a copy of the manual I came across at http://vintagemachinery.org/pubs/655/4072.pdf":http://vintagemachinery.org/pubs/655/4072.pdf
Looks a lot like my Jet 6” which was same vintage: Taiwan head, maybe US base/motor(?). Powermatic, in very good condition, for $400 does not sound out of line, and may be a good (to very good) buy. I’d seriously consider it. I know that does not help much, but maybe someone that owns/owned one will chime in.
As far as 3/4 hp goes, that would not bother me at all: I work in the 1/32” to 1/64” range nearly all the time, so if you are not hogging off material, you should be fine.
