My training in the 1970s ()

Thanks for the account of this, Steve. It's much like what I encountered on the UK forums, but with less accurate recollection than yours.

Which was "I already learned this when I was an apprentice, but we don't do it much because it's not that effective. We were taught to set the blade close in difficult wood, but I have a stanley 80 that works better".

That was a typical comment, that it was learned, but something else was more effective.
