Love the shavings with the pattern in them!

Your numbers come up to what I measured with the microscope against a piece of wire known to be 7 thousandths in diameter.

Early discussions centered around trying to get sets based on shims, but it's not necessary. Setting the cap right on the edge and then "just until you see a glint of light)" will easily yield something like 4 thousandths and then "a little bit more space than that" will double it. The two are discernibly different and one with less experience (like me) will end up settling around there with a smoother because it's safe.

I mentioned the closed mouth (And warren the thin shaving), not because tearout might be an issue, but because breakout of fibers on the ends of pieces obviously could be. The one thing where a cap iron is not an asset is planing across grain and rolling fibers off. Ends of boards with bad grain also present this, where the resistance of pushing a chip, even a little bit, can plane the very edge off of such a board.

It's sort of a false dilemma in that case, because you wouldn't want to work dovetails into such a board, either. They'd have no strength and cutting / paring sockets in half blinds in wood like that is miserable.
