Blue spruce Chisels in Lie Neisen honing guide ?
#11
  
I know that the LN honing guide was built around their products. Anyone have any idea how well Blue Spruce paring or dovetail chisels will work in it?

Thanks

I know Barr Chisels won't fit in the LN Honing Guide.   Rolleyes

Philip1231- Good to know on the Blue spruce appreciate it.

Belle City Woodworking- a shame but good to know as well. They are too thick? I know the slicks would be a bit long?

I had Blue Spruce paring chisels and have the LN honing guide.  The 1/4" Blue Spruce did not fit the LN guide.  The 1/2" did perfectly.  The BS 1/4" was a hair too thin for the guide. The guide's lips closed against each other leaving the 1/4" chisel loose.

They taper the slightest little bit and they are very thick blades.  I have begun to use a Veritas MKII honing guide for the wider chisels and the Narrow Chisel guide for the others.  Shame I had to get these just for these chisel but over the years I believe it will be worth the investment.  The project I worked on today the Barr Chisels made short work of it.

Mongo,

L-N have a pair of jaws for small chisels and I suspect these will hold the BS chisel.

Brad,

I certainly am.  It is a beautiful piece of engineering.
