     I swapped a piece of machinery I don't need anymore for a 15" Woodtek planer, model #855266.  It needs a couple of replacement parts, and I'd like an owners manual too.  Anybody got an idea on where to fine 'em?  I've been looking for the last hour and all I'm doing is drawing blanks.

Most 15" import planners are all the same design.  Probably 90% of the older ones came out of the GeeTech factory in Taiwan.  There will be small differences such as color and infeed/outfeed tables.

Go to the Grizzly website and look at there planners.  If you find a picture that looks like your machine it is probably the same.  You can download a manual and parts list from them.
