I took my old late '50's greenie and had the motor rewired so that it became reversible and then mounted the headstock on a shorty base. I think mine was one of the last machines Bill Mayo worked on, and he did a great job. The headstock is now equipped with a switch that allows me to select the direction of rotation, so I have the bandsaw mounted on one end and the jointer on the other and it is just a matter of sliding the headstock from one end to the other and flipping a switch to use either spt. This is a really convenient setup; it solves the storage issue for the two spt's and also means that I rarely have to lift and move them.
Just another idea to consider.
