It will be a major step up from the Porter Cable saw. The Exacta fence is a good Biesmeyer clone and based on my experience with their products in the past Jet makes solid performers. I have owned a Jet 1 HP shaper and an left tilt XL cabinet saw and had no trouble with either machine and for what it’s worth Jet has always received consistently good reviews from the woodworking mags. In my area if you can wait cabinet saws show up on Craigslist from time to time for a little more money but the price is in line with what contractor saws of this caliber go for used. I’d still try to get the price down a bit first, go over the saw with a fine tooth comb to insure your not buying someones problem. It looks to be pretty well used so look for any sloppiness in the tilt and height mechanism etc.
