One advantage that occurred to me last night while I was planing, with a standard bailey bevel down design is that you can adjust them while they are actually in use. The depth wheel can be run fore or aft in the middle of a cut as can the lateral adjuster. I’m not aware of any bevel ups that have adjusters that would allow that.
