IMO wait for it to go then just replace it, the adapting would make for a bunch of work.

Hmm... Do you know the specs of the treadmill motor? If it is a different voltage than the bandsaw you will have problems with under/over voltage... And even if they were the same it's unlikely they would draw the same current. If you give some more specs I might be able to help... And a picture is worth a thousand words...
