Unlike other Overflow items, I am not giving away this one for free. I am asking $700. December 16 update: the Jointer/Planer is now sold.
Several years ago, I bought a 10″ jointer/planer combination machine, which was made in Switzerland by Inca. Since I already had an 8″ long-bed jointer and 13″ thickness planer, I never made room for this combination machine in my shop. I don’t foresee any use for it in my shop, so it’s time to find it a better home where it will be used and appreciated.
Here is the jointer/planer combination machine. Inca machines are very well designed and of very high quality. They are becoming increasingly rare and are sought-after by woodworkers with limited space.
The dust shroud is sitting on the shelf of the included stand.
When I brought it home, I knew that I wouldn’t be using it soon, so I sprayed the tables with Boeshield T9.The tables remain in fine condition. I believe that they are cast aluminum.
The aluminum fence slides forward about half way. This is the limit.
The machine features a two-knife Tersa head (I believe that this defines the machine as model 560). Knife changes are the absolute simplest and easiest (I’ve heard that blade changes take all of 30 seconds). A spare set of knives is included.
The jointer features a European-style guard that slides back for jointing edges and can be flipped out of the way when required.
The lever with the black ball knob controls the height of the guard. With this style of guard, you pass your material underneath the guard when jointing the face.
Stock is fed underneath the jointer beds for thicknessing operations.
There is a two-speed gearbox, which I believe is for the thickness planer’s feed rollers. The white label above the lever says “Made in Switzerland”.
Power to the machine is controlled by a magnetic switch.
The 2HP motor draws 10.7 amps and runs on 220V power.
Here is the plug that is installed on the machine.
The saw was made in 1987 – a very good year!
The compact size of this machine makes it ideal for a small shop. The beds may be short, but are adequate for most furniture-scale jointing operations. Furthermore, carefully-located infeed and outfeed support will improve the machine’s ability to joint very long material when required. Personally, I see more value in a 10″ cutting width than long beds. I am asking $700 but will accept offers if you will be giving it a good home.
The machine weighs approximately 120 pounds and has an overall size of 48 x 40 x 32 inches (length x width x height).

Excellent pictures and descriptions. Perhaps you could provide the shipping weight and dimensions for those considering buying.
Good suggestion! The weight of the machine is approximately 120 pounds and the overall dimensions are 48 x 32 x 40 inches (length x width x height).
I live all the way on the East coast of NY, so this would be a real stretch to ship. How much does it weigh?
The machine weighs approximately 120 pounds.
Too far to ship or I’d be all over it :( bugger
Where do you live , I’m in on Ontario Canada. Eric
I’m just outside of Vancouver, BC.
Is this still available?
I wish I live near by since I’ve been looking for this machine for two decades. I think your price is a bit high side since I live in Chicago, IL in US because I have to consider the cost of handling the item’s shipping
I am interested in the Inca jointer/planer. What is your address and postal code so I can get an estimate for shipping from UPS. Also are you able to take the machine apart and crate it so it will arrive undamaged?
I will contact you personally with my postal code. I am able to remove the machine from the base and package it for transport.
Nice work and a very professional site. If the gentleman above does not purchase your Inca, I will. Keep the stand and disassemble the machine into smaller/lighter boxes. Best Regards, Joe
Robert (the gentleman who commented above) declined, but there are two others ahead of you with interest. I will let you know if they decide not to buy it.
Sir, is this item still for sale?
It is on hold pending sale/pickup. I’ll let you know if it becomes available again.
I Have a INCA in mint condition and would consider selling.
