I normally grind the edge of the chipbreaker to a "Knife's Edge" To where the thinnest part is laying on the iron...and will compress just a hair to seal of any gaps.

Some chipbreaker develop a curve to them, from sitting clamped down too long, and too hard....Have have to resort to a few blows with a hammer, to remove the curve...NOT the "hump". Lay the chipbreaker on a flat surface, and see IF it will rock side to side....then flip over and try the other flat space of the chipbreaker.....Goal for the hammer is to flatten any curve out. Otherwise, it will take way too much time, metal, and cussing to close up a gap made by the chipbreaker merely having a curve to it...
