INCA saws use flat tires. It takes a while to get the
hang of tracking a blade on an INCA 340, but unless
the saw has been damaged, it should track well
once you figure it out.

Try a 1/2” blade to start and bring in up to tension,
then rotate the wheel by hand and adjust the
wheel tilt knob until the blade tracks evenly.
Because the tires are flat, the INCA is more
sensitive to adjust but with practice you’ll get
the hand of it. Rotate by hand many times
before running a blade under power.

Inca has flat wheels so blade is not centered on the wheel . It runs along the front edge of the tire . Use urethane tires.
