I am looking at a 10” inca saw. I see that the fence is on the left or the blade… Is this to allow use of the morticer, because it is tilt table, or ? It comes with the morticer table as well as long rails for the fence ad looks to be in great condition. What would a good price be to buy it?

Thanks

The front and rear fences slide in dovetailed slots and are clamped in place
by four clamps under the table. You don’t have to remove the rails
to use the mortiser, you can tilt the table 45 degrees to get the rails up in
air if you like, but they can also be slid to the left and then they don’t
interfere with mortiser access.

$500-800 would be the going rate for a saw like the one in the picture
as they are collectible and it includes the guard assembly and mortiser.

Standard accessories do not fit this saw, and you’ll pay a lot for missing
parts so make sure it has the miter gauge too, which usually includes
an aluminum cross—cut fence with a flip-stop.

The fence can be used on either side of the blade, but if tilting the
table to rip bevels, the fence would go on the left. In straight cuts
left or right is fine.

I have never used a tilt table saw. My unisaw has tilting blade, however, it is 5hp 3 phase (from my old shop) and to much for my basement. It would seem that it shouldn’t matter which side the fence is on when you rip with ihe table tilted, what is the reason?
Thanks

The Inca tilts to the left. If the fence is on the right, the work slides away
from the fence. Fence on the left, gravity pulls it in tight.

If the table tilts both ways, isn’t that equally true both ways? I guess it is just which way you are comfortable with. Thanks for the info on the saw. I am not sure whether I will be comfortable with a tilt table or not.

INCA 250 table does not tilt both ways. Left only.
