All waxes and resins are going to give off an pungent smell that is not meant for humans to inhale.
That being said yeah your neighbors will complain unless it is vented outside the building.
Casting in your garage and vented out will be less troublesome but it will not make them happy

So if I burn out in a basement and vent outside at that level ... probably will still be an issue for those on the 2nd floor ?

Maybe if the fumes rise up to an open window. Best to burnout overnight to avoid the fumes from wafting into someone else's space as long as it is vented outside. I you own your own home it most likely not be an issue. but if it is an apt. with upstairs neighbors there is a possibility unless it is overnight.

How much money do you have?
Any place like Rio, Gusswien, Stuller, Otto Frei and so many others will have entry level
ovens. size of oven and functions depend on you pocket book and also the size of the cans your
are casting with.
