Inca Jointer Equivalent?
« on: May 08, 2007, 08:05 PM »
I've been looking for an Inca 570 without a lot of luck.  I used to use one daily at my old job and was hoping to snatch it up when we closed up shop, but I missed out and all other jointers since just don't feel right to me.  I've become used to the feel of "euro-ish" machines.  I'm looking for an equivalent in size, functionality and quality.  I'm also spoiled with the Tersa cutterheads.  If any of you guys have any opinions on good jointers I'd like to hear about it.

Have you looked at the Inca discussion group on Yahoo Groups?  From time to time I see various Inca tools posted there.  I also see them on EBay and Craigs List.

Go to and search for Inca to subscribe to the group.  Alan Maier is the moderator I believe and a great source out of Colorado for info on all things Inca.

Good luck.  I still have my bandsaw, tablesaw and jointer.  Inca plus Festool are the best.

Thanks!  I'll check those out.  Getting anything else to go with my Festools is like parking a Yugo in the same garage as a Benz.
