Congrats on the jointer.

I installed a Shelix head on my old 6" Rockwell jointer. I like it a lot. Got it directly from Byrd. Google them. They have some in stock and some you have to wait for them to get to your version to make it. I bought mine with the bearings already installed. Installation could not have been easier. They even sent a few spare cutters. (Not that I would EVER hit a nail or rock, you know) I even sold the old head and knives.

I am in the process of buying and old 15" planer and will replace the head on that as soon as I get it.
