Unless you're running really skinny lightweight boards, you're going to find that anything less than a 1 hp feeder is not up to the task for very long.  Many, many guys have tried and reported back the same findings on WW forums for decades.  Just trying to prevent you from needing to upgrade.  I have 2 feeders on 2 different pieces of equipment, and they are all 1 hp feeders.  Rip saw and shaper.  I tried running one on a 24" jointer I used to own, but it was more trouble than it was worth, constantly having to adjust the height after each pass.  

I know a guy who has a digital readout for the height of his feeder on his 16" jointer.  Slick set up, but I never wanted to go to the trouble.....it works well for him, though.

  I was ready to order those polyurethane tires until I waxed the shaper table.
Most everything I enjoy doing turns out to be work

Western Roller.  Best source for quality.  Just replaced 6 rollers from them on 2 feeders.  The chinese ones on ebay are a joke.
