It'd be a good idea to introduce the rummynoses first and let them gain them size before introducing the angelfish.

A big angelfish may start eating rummynoses.

That would have to be one big a** angelfish. Rummynose tetras get fairly large when they are mature. Many people that keep discus also stock their tank with rummynose as they are a good indicator for water quality. Their noses will be bright red when the water quality is good. I would say that angelfish with rummynose will be just fine but I would add the rummynose first because if the angelfish are put in the tank first it becomes their tank and don't take to new guests to kindly.

My smallest rummynose is 1 inch and the largest about 1.5". I plan to get small angels about quarter size.

I have kept Rummynose with somewhat large (?) adult angels in the past--angels with bodies about the size of a dollar coin?. No problems at all--rummynose can actually get pretty big and they are very fast swimmers. I have never seen any aggression from Rummynose towards anything.

IMO, Angels and Rummynose should be fine. I agree that the Rummynose should ideally be in the tank first, though. Unless you have a tiny angel, and are hoping to raise it to maturity.
