This must not occur on mine. I have a lot of planes that I use only a little, but the cap iron in pictures below is one that's seen a whole bunch of wood in the last several years. Maybe 90% of the smoothing I've done (from try plane, not planer) and it's been used to make a couple of cocobolo planes, for the entire process.

Perhaps I'll get a picture of the try plane cap iron tonight - it's a different iron.

it strikes me that warren made the comment here quite a while ago that either he hasn't done it in decades or he's done it rarely.
