a rule of thumb, applicable to any plane ….

I don’t know of any exception to the following guideline—install the blade so the maker’s mark is showing (face up)

Hello Johnny7 That certainly makes sense…assuming, of course that all blades are marked. Thank You for your helpful and useful comment.

I’m not sure what you mean by most block planes are bevel up. That’s really not true.

The 101 is bevel down.

Most normal angle (bedded at 45 degrees) are bevel down. Most low angle block planes (bedded 12 degrees or similar) are bevel up.
