Does anyone know of a mid-size iron (half-way between travel and full size) to use for sewing?  I've got a travel iron but its too light and small, and my full size iron is bulky and takes  up a lot of space on my small worktable. 
The idea is to have an iron which is to hand when making bags etc and pressing seams.  It doesn't need to do major pressing.
Any suggestions would be appreciated.

I use a Steamworks travel iron, from Argos.  It's a little bigger than most, has a sharper point for detailed work.  The handle doesn't close down and it was dirt cheap.  I have been using it for at least 5 years.  It heats up quickly.  The only thing is the steam, you have to turn a knob to put it on and off but it does do a wet spray.
