Since your website has no apparent facilities for readers to comment on reviews I thought I'd comment here. The review was comprehensive and mostly accurate, however there is a downside to the design of this jig. First, is that a drill bit stop collar cannot be used with the jig. Second, is that the tightening knobs are somewhat difficult to tighten and access especially when using the jig in a vise. I would recomment that some sort of hex nut tightening system be used. All that being said, I own the jig and am using the daylights out of it for my current project, a set of 8 patio chairs, requiring 18 loose tenon joints per chair. The BeadLOCK has made my project much easier.

Tom,
Thanks for the additional comments and feedback on the BeadLock. I am sure plenty of eyes will pass over them in this forum.

beadLOCK is a great loose tenon system. In your review, you used a 3/8" brad point drill which beadLOCK says not to do. It eats up the guide. A standard twist drill should be used.
