timothale is right, a good used one will work just fine for you. A floor model gives you more versatility, but a bench top model will do almost as much, takes up less space, and is quite a bit cheaper. I have a Delta bench top that I am happy with. Craftsman, Grizzly, Jet, Rigid, and Dewalt all make good units, too. Buy as good a quality unit as you can afford. Good luck.
Does the motor not work, or what? If the motor doesn't work, look for a reset button. If not, by all means send it back to Harbor Freight. They will take care of you.
No one lives forever, the trick is creating something that will.
