I expect I will continue to freehand sharpen 90% of the time but I can see once the mortise chisel attachment is available I could use the LN jig for my pig stickers. It should also be useful for keeping the bevels flat on the Japanese chisels.
We will see once the attachments are released, or it could end up in the black hole of unused sharpening jigs....Happened more than once before.
Anyway it, the Lie-Nielsen jig, arrived a couple of days ago and here are a few photos of it with a couple of residents of the black hole of tools and one of the Lie-Nielsen set for use.

Same but wheel side.
With a Japanese paring chisel set for a 25 degree bevel.
