I had a Rockwell Invicta 13” planer with a broken chain (for the feed rollers). Everything was metric (Invicta is a Brazilian company), so I was a bit flummoxed by the chain. Local hardware store had nothing metric. Out of curiosity I took the chain into my local (Bellingham) Grizzly, and the clerk helpfully took one of their planers apart enough to compare chains. Their’s fit perfectly. Of course I’ve known those guys for years, so that may have something to do with the customer service.

Don’t know whether this addresses your issue. Another source to check would be someone like Applied Technologies. They have an online catalog. Good luck with that.

I got more parts from Grizzly for my Delta DC 380 (22-675) the chain drive for feed rollers would skip even with a new chain. The Grizzly has tensioner on both chains. So I ordered the parts. About $15 with shipping, Works great! About 10 minutes to install.
