yeah – I know this is probably a stupid question, but I’m going to ask anyway. Would someone mind posting a picture of their 1/4 in chisel in one of the generic Eclipse style honing guides for me please? I think either I’m not seating mine right or I need to do some filing on the jig, but I want to be sure I’m seating it right in the first place. Thanks!

I don’t have a pic but I have trouble using my guide with my 1/4” chisel. The guide works well with wider chisels but does not clamp well to the narrow ones.

I sharpen the 1/4” by hand.

I use the Kell guide for most chisels, superior to the Eclipse-type for everything, and I prefer it for chisels over the Veritas Mk II. It is especially noticeable for narrower chisels.

waho6o9, if you don’t mind, what is the guide with two wheels you show in your top picture? Looks better than what I’m using.

Pretty sure both Garrett Wade and Tools for Working Wood carry them in the US

thanks all :) I’ll have to look up the Kell guide as well. my 1/4 isn’t the only one I’m having issues with but it’s the one showing the biggest issue. Something about the eclipse guide isn’t sitting right and the bevel is a bit skewed… I’ll see if I can get a pic to better explain what I’m seeing.

Becky I’ll try to get a picture for you if you still need it, but I’ve already filed mine. You have seen the Lie Nielsen video on filing the guide to fit better, right?

Why not using a well squared piece of wood, wider than the chisel; clamp the chisel to it in some way (e.g cut a groove 1’’ wide and screw another piece over so the chisel does not move). Then clamp the piece of wood in the eclipse jig, the extra width should help.
