MULTICO bought INCA in 2005. When I bought my Inca tools their reputation was as good if not better than Felder and Festool today. They were incredibly accurate tools well built for carpenters who really wanted a precise job. The finish of this machine leaves on the wood is incredible. The legend is well deserved.The Inca is almost legendary for its quality, and the smooth finish it leaves on wood. It's almost like having a Jaguar E-Type or Martin D-28. You live up to the legend.
Does INCA live up to its reputation? The Inca Euro 260 is a popular small band saw, with model number 342.186. What it lacks in modern features, it makes up for in reliability and accuracy.
Mostly used for dimensioning smaller pieces and fine work, not resawing large planks. The mitre gauge is rare, and interchangeable with the one of the Inca Universal, as both use the dovetailed mitre slot. The Inca Euro 260 can be found quite regularly on the second-hand market. The Inca Expert 500 is its larger brother. Tip: If your Inca bandsaw is missing the rip fence, Axminster in the UK sells one that fits perfectly (Im using this myself).You just need to drill some holes in the rail to fit it to the table. One thing to note is that the saw blade is reversed compared to most modern band saw blades. Mention this when you are ordering your new blade and the shop will weld it the other way around. Parts and Blades: One part that often needs to be replaced is the rubber tire around the wheel (tends to dry out). One possible replacement is a urethane tire, which can be found here. A good source for bandsaw blades in Europe is TuffSaws, which sells many different blades that will fit the Inca. Excellent small bandsaw, accurate, reliable, and affordable. Value for moneyAAQualityAWhat we don't like. Lacks some modern features like a switch to relieve blade tension. Size of the table is quite small.
Doesnt take up much space. Cheap compared to modern machines of this level of quality.
