Inca 710 band saw with spacer block

I've been a bit sick over the last year which has kept me from doing any significant wood work. But after the long process of tests and treatments given by UCDavis doctors I have come something like full circle.
With good things come sometimes more good things. I found an inca 710 with nearly no use, extension rails new, new additional extension tables ( in original bags) 9 blades new stuff all over. The owner didn't know how any of it really worked except the standard fence I guess. It has the 2" riser block taking resaw capabilities to 10", and which requires 9 ft long blades. I ordered the woodslicer blades from highland hardware that are 3/4". I use the 1/2" woodslicer on my inca 340, and I can make veneers it cuts so nice. Hoping to rearrange a smaller room that houses my laundry and my water heater, which can be used as a workspace for the winter, until I turn it into another bedroom, a new bathroom or an office.
The photos are of me cutting a western red cedar round that was in a pile of oak firewood so I jointed and face then edge and resawed a bit with a crappy blade I had, but even this cut pretty sweet. I'm using the stock rip fence that must be 2" tall on a 9+" thick piece and it cuts surprisingly easy and straight...

I don't have much room at my house for all my incas so I'm looking at what's going to have to go, likely at least a 340, and now I think I can get away with selling the 259 table saw as well.

The 150 table saw I have is so nice and compact that I can use it for model making and kumiko on shoji screens and it is housed in a 10x 12 shed anyhow. But I may part with some accessories in the near future so look out....

Gearing up for a few projects indoors, shoji screens, maybe a few sliding shoji doors, and I'll be learning how to put up American clay walls in December to add to my kitchen and maybe other walls

I also just picked up the iPhone blogger application so I should be able to get some posts up in a more reasonable time these days.

Glad to be back

Great looking saw. I have a friend who is selling one (with the riser) and I am very close to pulling the trigger.

Let me know if you are happy with your purchase...

I did not know the INCA bandsaws could be fitted with a spacer block. Do you have a pic?

Hi there,

I stumbled upon your website while looking for reviews around Inca Machinery. I'd like to thank you for the kind words around our products. There's unfortunately a lot of mis-information around the current status of the company and we're trying to gain some awareness by contacting websites which are already talking about us.

We've only recently launched our website, but I'd really appreciate it if you'd be able to add a small link on your website on this page: for those looking for parts etc. Would it be possible for you to add this line of code on this page?

Inca Machines


Thanks,
