Hi Wiley,

Thanks for your comments! Yes I'm basically grinding back over time and then maintaining a thinner landing.

In that one picture I'm using the stick as a drift pin, then shimming the corners of the iron to deform it.

The hammer is a boat builders hammer, I think it is 225g weight, I rounded it over more so than ground back since it arrived with a fairly large contact point.
