Default Space Marine Equipment

I am still working on the fluff for my home brew chapter, but I've come up with a stumbling block, namly where do SM chapters get there power armour from?
I know some chapters like the Ultramarines can make thier own in forges, as can a few other chapters, but my chapter has no access to a forge capable of making more than the more basic tech (bikes, some weapons) and I am sure that the Adeptus Mechanicus must supply SM chapters in some way, but how I am not sure, would a decimated chapter that still has enough marines to be usefull get supplies to rebuild from the AM?
My chapter fluff revovles around being on the flip side of old greatness, and if anyone can give me some pointers to how I can work in slow expansion without the abuility to make power armour I would be greatfull.
I do plan to raid/hunt chapters that have gone rogue, I already have in my fluff that they captured a Relictors strike cruiser in an ambush that gives them some abuility to move from conflict to conflict. The events that lead to the near destruction of the chapter happened 150 years ago and they are building up there numbers but are limited by equipment more than by personel.

Thanks.

IIRC, forge worlds supply starting SM chapters with a lot of their gear...i'd say that some SM chapters would never stop being supplied from a forge world, if there was one in a convenient and, above all, safe location nearby

This sounds about right to me, maybe they actually come from the forge world supplying them in some cases, who knows?

Yeah, I'd say once they get their "startup gear" set from a forgeworld, it's mainly up to the techmarines to maintain it, patching together the armor of slain brothers for a scout to step into. I'd guess once every few hundred years, they might go through a proper refit, replacing the worst bits and the ones that were total losses (direct hit from a plasma cannon?)
