Back Bevels and Cap Irons ()

That's good information in combination with the fact that once the wear from a close-set cap iron is introduced (the deep short wear), the 1/2mm rule (which I understand to add a fraction of a degree) ends up getting chased larger to try to keep up with wear unless the wear is left or a bunch of the bevel is ground off.
