I use a Worksharp 3000 with MDF discs covered with polishing compounds. To touch up the blade on a chisel I just stick it in the slot the machine has built in. I keep it set to the microbevel angle, so is needs no adjustments for a quick touch up. No jig required. For hand planes I usually put off honing until I absolutely have to. Then I use a jig on the top of the WS (I built a platform on an episode of BCWW). Since I am going to the trouble to take it out of the plane and all, putting it in a jig is not that much more work.
