FWIW – I did some more searching out of curiosity.
The 15” Jet 708538 JWP-15DX, and Powermatic 15/15H made back in same time period all use jack screw for blades. Did find that the Grizzly 1021/1021Z models use springs in cutter heads, and these have motor in base with moving planing table. These might be closet cousin to your Buffalo?

Grizzly just reintroduced the Taiwan made g1021Z due to China tariffs. Parts for g1021 should be easy to get. The g1021 blade setting jig is only $13.25. :)

PS – The cutter springs for all the spring models appear to be same size:
COMPRESSION SPRING 0.6 X 5.9 X 16
One PN is P1021Z103. They are $1.25 each.

Best Luck.
