Iron vs. heavier bronze? Don't really favor one over the other, personally.
Iron done right is OK.
I do _love_ the lateral limiting screws for the LV blade, and the A2 has
been a good steel.
So weight to LN, use to LV.
To be honest, I've never bothered with them on my LV block plane, but I
found them wonderful to getting the blade perfectly centered on my LV
shoulder plane. The blade is almost exactly the same width as the body,
so even a tiny mis-alignment means it binds on one side or the other.
The screws made it a snap to get right.
Isn't that the point ? because they're there, you don;t need to
adjust them. If they weren't there, the mouth walls would need to be
wider and the iron would have the potential for going out of
adjustment. As it is, then they fit snugly and there's no room for
misalignment to arise.
