the belt ring thingy
I believe the correct technical term is ”the round thingamajig”

Yes, changing to a much much much much larger pulley on the motor end, or a much much much much much much smaller pulley on the bandsaw would do the trick. Right now the top speed is 400fpm. You want around 3,000 fpm for wood. You’ll have to look up the whole math bit but you need to go big enough to go about 7.5x faster than it is now. That might be a bigger pulley than you have room for.
