Is everyone positive a jig saw isn't the answer? The OP didn't ask, but if cost is a consideration a quality jig saw like a Bosch may provide the best bang for the buck.

Yes, price is a consideration. If I had the money and the space, I'd buy a large bandsaw and a scroll saw. However, neither is likely to happen real soon, so it looks like a benchtop bandsaw is my best bet.  

Does anybody have any opinions on the Grizzly 9" bandsaw?

A friend of mine has the little benchtop Grizzly.  It's very nicely made and runs great.  However, many folks favor the Rikon 10".

I have never used that Grizzly machine, but I have used a small cheap 9" bandsaw from another manufacturer (can't remember which one). It was totally useless. I sold it for $25 in a garage sale and felt guilty for weeks afterwards.
