I broke one of the drive chains on my Omega 15” planer. I inherited this planer from my grandpa. I have no idea how long he had or where he got it. It is a very heavy, mostly cast planer. It does beautiful work.
My first challenge is that I cannot find any reference to this brand of tools on line. It has a silver placard on the light green body that say Omega Chicago Ill 15” Planer. The sticker with serial number and model number is so faded that you cannot see any numbers at all.
So if anyone knows anything about this brand please let me know so I can track down replacement parts.
My other option is to hope that this chain is a standard machine item that I could find from some kind of machine tool company.
Any ideas anyone??
Thanks for any suggestions!!
