    Default can the pitting on this plane be lapped away?

    I have a Stanley bailey no.4 that i want to put to use.

    I've been lapping it with 50 and 80 grit on a glass place whenever i have a little time loose. I wanted to ask if the pitting can be lapped away, or if I'm doing more harm than good here.
