I’m confused as to what your question is.

You wrote, My only question is for dimensioning wood, is the bevel up blade going to take more of a beating than a standard bedrock style plane.
I’m not sure I know what you mean, take more of a beating. My favorite smoother is still my 604. You can read my review on the LN #62, I love it, but its for different grain, and I don’t use it for typical smoothing.

I for one hate changing blades. I’ve planed pieces that take 3 different planes in the same piece. I’d hate 3 different blades for that, especially when a GOOD Stanley #4 is about $50. A LOT less if you can restore.

Next but the jointer is my confusion.
Confusion how?
