Not familiar with that model, but it seems to me that if it’s been working fine for you up until the chain broke, then I’d just replace the chain and be happy it wasn’t something more expensive. Spending the bucks to swap one lunch box planer for another of a different brand doesn’t make much sense unless you just don’t like the Ryobi and want to try something new. As for blades.. you will most likely need to replace them on anything you purchase off of Craigslist as well (or at least get them sharpened), so that shouldn’t really be a major deciding factor.

Cheers,
Brad
