Inca 560 Planer Feed Upgrade

The Inca 550, 560 and 570 Combination 10-1/4″ Jointer/Planer Machine is a phenomenal Swiss made precision tool. It’s one achilles heel however is that the speed reduction arrangement to power the planer rollers have a plastic helical gear that can be damaged from lack of lubrication, prolonged use or aggressive cutting. I’ve eliminated the one weak point of the machine by installing a 57rpm dc gear motor that allows for infinite feed speed from 0 to 21 linear feet per minute (stock is ~11lfm (low) & 16lfm (high). This is how I did it.

Another day of production in the shop where I show another stage of how an end grain cutting board is formed. This video, I take you through the process of taking the rough panels and running them through my 20 inch grizzly planer to make them smooth and suitable for gluing. I also take out the trash along the way.

It’s not too often you can adapt any of your woodworking tools to do other things, but when you can it’s like having a brand new woodworking tool in your shop. Such is the case when you can turn you planer into a wide board jointer.
Normally a thickness planer is used to plane wood to an even thickness after one face side has already been jointed and is flat and even. If you are in a situation where you have a board that is wider than your jointer, it is possible to joint on face of a board using your planer. The simple trick to this is to make a planing jig from a flat board like a high density fiber board. The idea is to insert wooden wedges in the gaps between your jig and your board to be planed. What this does is prevent your board that is being jointed from rocking in the planer and coming out as warped as it was when it went in. By forcing it to be be stable, the planer has a chance to shave the top edge of the board, thus giving you one flat side. To make your board an even thickness, simply turn it over so the flat side is down and plane your board to thickness and in no time you will have exactly what you are looking for, a wide, flat, evenly planed board … all with the help of a simple planing jig.
