How many cuts per minute are you sizing the pulley for?

I m just keeping it at what it was when I received it. The jointer came with a 2.55in pulley on the motor and the cutterhead. The motor itself is 3450rpm. I ll just keep it the same for now.

I’m surprised the original setup has the same size pulley on both the motor and cutter. That will give you about 10,350 CPM with a 3450 RPM motor. I think 13,000 to 14,000 CPM will produce a cleaner cut. I assume the cutter is 3 blade.
