I have the same guide as you but don’t think I have ever used it on a 1/4” chisel.
I just put a 1/4” Buck bench chisel in mine and there is no way I could get it firmly
seated in the guide, just as you are experiencing.
if you want to use the guide, you could grind the sides of the chisel to fit the grooves
of the guide – not cut the guide itself.
or – make some kind of homemade jig for the small profile chisels.
I rarely use anything smaller than a half inch so I never noticed the issue before.
