This is currently listed in my local (D.C.) craigslist. Inca 500. 3 speed, 20” throat, 1.5hp. Granted, its a three-wheel machine which can be problematic; but the size of the throat and gigantic table are immensely attractive to me. If If I could justify spending $400on something I don’t need, then I’d buy it. But its still a cool BS. I wish Inca still made tools. I find thier quality and designs very desirable.

All you have to do is change the phrase “i want it ” to “I really need that” :))

That’s an excellent saw and a very good price. I have one
of those saws and really like it. The machine is made so
well the 3-wheel issue really isn’t a problem. It’s also
bigger than a lot of 3 wheel woodworking saws so
the wheels are bigger.

...great dust collection too.

Love the 20 inch throat, that’s the dimension I wish the market competed with not the height of the cut. Sometimes the industry just gets it backwards.

I agree. Inca 710 resaws to 8”, which is generally enough in
my experience. The 20” throat comes in handy for all sorts
of things that are otherwise not that convenient, like
notching out the corners of panels.

Have your say...
