If you’ve gotten along just fine with bevel up planes, why do you want bevel down, specifically L-N? I’ve got both types, but it seems to me that spending a lot of money just for a lateral adjuster is waste of $. In the grand scheme of things, a lateral adjuster lever isn’t that big of a deal vs. my tiny hammer.

The reason I don’t use bevel up planes exclusively is because the tearout you can get is horrific. Avoiding that problem is more of a compelling reason to me for using BD planes.
