Make sure there are no rough places anywhere around the mouth; the sides of the mouth can make trouble. It is nice if there is some clearance between the plane iron and the sides of plane, like 1/32 or more.

We usually polish and round the cap iron. If the cap iron is too close to the edge for the thickness of the shaving, the shaving does not exit cleanly.
