I don’t know the difference between the bw6j and 6r but I’d wager the people who manufacture the Shelix head would/should know. I’d call the company I’m interested in buying a head from and ask them.

In my unsolicited opinion a jointer is not a finish machine, its a dimensioning tool . I wouldn’t worry to much about the finish of the cut too much. The surface still need to be sanded, scraped anyway.

I have read in many places that the Shelix heads take more power. Here again the smart money may be to ask the manufacturer you plan on buying from.
