Thanks for the leads, guys. I'm going to take a look at a 2hp, 3450 RPM
motor for $139 from Tractor Supply. I'll take the old motor with me to
compare spindle and pulley sizes. Any "gotchas"? TS labels this as a
Yes, make sure the new motor turns in the same directions as your old
one. Make sure the continues rating is the same as your old one. Make
sure the RPM on the old matches the new one. Make sure the frames are
identical or will you need an adapter. Make sure the old pulley can be
moved to the new one or buy a new one at Tractor Supply while you are
there. Do you need a new belt as well? See if TS has one of those as well.

GENERALLY speaking, compressor motors are not continuous duty and are
designed for high starting torque. You do not need the high starting
torque, and jointer service is not 100% duty cycle under load - so you
might be OK.
I really like sealed (dust proof) motors for woodworking equipment
