Had same problem. Gets worse with smaller width chisels.
If you insist on using a guide:
Either have to change chisel side bevel with grinder to match honing guide, modify honing guide dovetail slot to match chisel, or do what I did – toss that cheap guide in junk drawer and get a Veritas Honing guide.
Problem with differences in chisel side bevels disappears with Veritas MKII guide.
Lie Nelson produces a honing guide with interchangeable jaws to help solve tool fit issues as well.
