Most of the chisels I have been sharpening still appear square. It was just this last one which I spent a lot of time on that is now skewed. I went through all of them and loaded them in the jig a few times and noticed a couple shifted on me after I put it to the stone. The thing is, although I can manage to get it squarely in the jig, it does not fit in the groves where the jig is expecting them. So I’ve concluded that I need to get chisels that fit the jig and perhaps a better jig if that doesn’t work.

That said, I did apply several of the tips you and others advised me on and being more careful to keep the blade square, I did get the sharpest blade I had yet! :)
