Pete, to answer your smoothing question, it depends on the plane and how its tuned. You can take shaving so thin you can see threw them if its tuned well enough. If you need to remove more material, you can lower the blade and take thicker shaving.

Scroll through this thread, you’ll see lots of “shavings” shots.

Look about halfway down this page there is a description of plane parts. You only sharpen the iron, but the cap iron must be tuned (could be refer to as sharpening i guess) so it fits snug. Unlike the iron, this is only done once to the cap iron, the iron is sharpened when ever it needs it.
