Pete, I agree with Steve. If it gets your tools sharp, who cares. Jigs in the workshop are for achieving consistent results. You’ll get to spend more time cutting, less time sharpening. And after you’ve sharpened you chisels you want to protect them. The covers that come with them don’t last very long, I lose them or they slip off to easy in my toolbox resulting in damaged chisels. I use the tops off qt. size gatoraid bottles. Take your coping saw and cut a slot in the side and slip over the end of the chisel. They stay on pretty well. Cut the slot only as big as you need. When using at the workbench they’ll keep your chisel from rolling off onto the floor.
