Wiley, that's what I was saying when I said "I'm not sure". Yes, this plane will be only rotation of the iron and no turning of the bed itself. (in airplane terms, all aileron and no rudder).

I think the lines up the bed of the plane will all be the bed pitch, and so, too, will the relief.

I can sharpen the relief into the direction of travel (which will be askew from the actual edge. No matter what, it will work fine, if there were any difference, it'd only be a degree or two. I have so many irons in the fire right now that I'm resisting the desire to draw a diagram and get out my trigonometry textbook from 25 years ago.
