Sistering Two Table Saws--Should I?

I’m considering buying a SawStop Contractor (not Jobsite) saw, and currently have a Ridgid 2412 (20+ years old but still good) contractor saw.

I’m thinking of discarding the steel base that they both use and building a common wooden base—then mounting the SawStop on the left and the Ridgid on the right—mostly to allow for two setups (one with a 90 degree cut, the other saw with either a 45 degree cut or a dado setup).

What considerations should I be making?

1) Need space on the right of the SawStop to access the angle-adjustment wheel
2) Need to get the 36” fence from SawStop to use it for both saws.

What else? Or is this just a stupid idea (I’m sure someone will have a good argument against it!)?
