Setting the cap iron ()

I don't know if this has any relevance to your question, Bill, but I have Never been able to set the cap iron on my Norris A5 as hair-splittingly close as then Kato video would seem to suggest. If I do, other cap iron chokes the mouth of then plane and everything comes to a halt. I set it back about 1/16" to 3/32" from the edge and still get excellent results. My Norris isn my go-to smoother; I get better results from it than I do from by Stanleys with the cap irons set close.
