Chamfer on a Loft Feature Result in Mismatched Edges

Hi All,

I used a simple loft between two faces to create the beginnings of a horse riding spur. A few steps later I'm attempting to chamfer an edge, but the resulting outer surfaces aren't quite aligned. When I then apply a fillet to smooth out the chamfer, the fillet cannot be applied. Here is the model: https://cad.onshape.com/documents/6701ce12bd50fe1d682ea938/w/f935442da346fe2b26f2fd65/e/41566febd29b8af46bbc8e55?renderMode=0&uiState=66875d0efa07331d6679d1e0

Image 1: Chamfer 1 is applied with no issues...

Image 2: Chamfer 2 applies with no issues, but you can see that the new walls are not aligned. The chamfer did not "follow" the loft curvature, and the subsequent fillet only propagates the issue further...

There is a folder at the end called "Chamfer and Radius Try 2" in which I try to loft/surface/face blend (with wall trims) to mimic a chamfer, but it has similar results...

What am I missing here, that allows chamfer 1 to work just fine, but chamfer 2 to result like mentioned above?
