Never a problem Jon 🙂  Yes, you consolidate the edge in much the same way with a #80/#080 iron and bunrish the flat side first to compress the face before burnishing the full surface of the 45 degree face.  You then rotate the burnisher  10 degrees forward of the leading edge (Away from the bevel) and create the hook.  With the #80/#080 standing on a flat work surface, insert the iron into the frame so its edge rests on the surface beneath and tighten the two set screws.  Adjust depth of cut by tightening the central screw and you’re set to go. 😉
