As some of you know I just finish rebuilding a Powermatic 60 jointer.
I looked on line for some kind of table indicating the maximum power/torque for V-belts but except for some very technical stuff, I could not find any information.
Interestingly enough on the parts catalog for the new Powermatic 60 with a 3HP motor there is only one belts.
It seems time that I am going to have to replace the pulley with 3 grooves pulleys to accept a third twist belt or may install multi-rib pulleys and belt.
What do you think?
