Need info on a Woodtec shaper

I've got a 1992 Woodtec 3 HP shaper (bought at a vo-tech school auction for $25). While it appears in pretty good shape with just a little rust on the cabinet, it did not include a manual or a fence. It did include three spindels and some various parts that I cannot identify. I would like to find a manual and maybe a source for a fence and/or any other needed parts. The plate included the following info:
Woodtec 803646 Date Code: Aug 1992 Serial Number 1021029 R 26841 Made in Tiawan
220 volt, 60 Hrz, 1 Phase
Any help or info as to where I can get parts and a manual would be appreciated.

@cs.com says...

Is it "Woodtec" or "Woodtek"? If the latter, contact Woodworkers' Supply of NM (<www.woodworker.com>) 1-800-645-9292. Woodtek is their house brand.

I've got a 1992 Woodtek 3 HP shaper . While it appears in decent shape with just a little rust on the cabinet, it did not include a manual, a fence, the spindle raising handwheel or the allen wrench that turns the internal bolt that holds the arbors in the spindle. It did include three spindels, a router collet(but nothing that tells me how to install and use it) and some various parts that I cannot identify. Woodworkers Warehouse sent me a manual, but man is it sparse - almost not worth having. Even the exploded diagram did not have any descriptions of the parts or part numbers. Anyway, I would like to get a source for some replacement parts and WWW doesn't seem to be the place to talk to right now. The manual says it was made by a company called Champ Fond Machinery Company in I assume Tiawan. I assume that this is pretty much a private branded version of a machine various companies sold. Someone mentioned Bridgewood as maybe having sold the same or similar units, but their web site did not have any parts info. I need a source for a fence. It also needs the large allen wrench that turns the bolt up in the spindle that holds in the arbors (I just need the size for this - it is way bigger than my largest allen wrenches, I'd say something in the neighborhood of 1/2 to 5/8ths inch or the metric equivalents). The handwheel is also missing - I assume if I measure the shaft I can get one of these somewhere, although the prices in the Reid catalog seem extreme. The plate included the following info: Woodtek 803646 Date Code: Aug 1992 Serial Number 1021029 R 26841 Made in Tiawan 220 volt, 60 Hrz, 1 Phase Anyone who can help with some info on this machine, any other "brands" that are the same and/or whether there are after-market sources for parets to fit this would be appreciated. Thanks to mklange for sending me a copy of his manual for his newer Woodtek 3 hp. It was similar and more detailed than the 1992 version ;)

Woodtek is the house brand of an outfit called Woodworker's Supply; web site is www.woodworker.com . They should be able to help, no?
