Subject:
more from Kato and Kawai

Bill Tindall, E.Tn.
An opportunity to get some more translations has come up and the opportunity seized.

To answer a lingering question about optimum cap iron angle they state for planing a Birch test piece that the optimum working of the cap iron occurred with a cap iron angle of 50 degrees, 150 microns back from the blade tip. The implication is that these values could be different for other situations. I have found that more often than not they use a cap iron angle of 50 degrees.

So, a cap iron angle of 50 degrees is a place to start (and stop unless you are into researching this variable).
