Yep, edge up from the bottom.
Other concern I have with it is that I'm just working with folders at the moment (i.e. no handle/tang), so would have to come up with a jig to hold the blade in place securely, although I guess that a generic handle with brace at the base would do the job.
Glad you found a suitable bandsaw. I was after one specifically for metal and gave up. In my minds eye it was going to rip through ti like ply - nope.
