Introducing the Shop Fox W1878 benchtop bandsaw - 9-inch, 1/3HP, Portable Benchtop.

The 1/3 HP, 120V, Single-phase motor draws just 2.8 Amps for intricate details, or resawing upto 3-5/8" material. So the Shop Fox W1878 benchtop bandsaw packs a lot into its 8-1/2" x 15-1/2" footprint. In addition, you get a 2" dust port so you only need a shop vac for clean air and dust collection. Likewise, at only 49 lbs, you can move it easily when you need to.
