Ive been looking into this as well. Rather than fill my small workspace with a record or metabo bandsaw, Im considering going the other way and buying a proxxon machine. These are designed for smaller work – but for me thats the point. I can do accurate curves and angled cuts. The quality of the Proxxon Bandsaw seems very good indeed. The max height of any piece is about 8cm (3 inches) but for me that would be perfectly fine. Proxxon make a whole range of quality tools for smaller work.
