I have the Bead Lock Pro and Have used it as a doweling Jig, and loose tennn Jig, and used it to create standard moritise and Tennon joints. I find that all of these types of jigs work rather well as long as you take the time to mill your limber down so that they are the same thickness when doing frame joints and other type joints when the material is all on the same plane,

I have had good results when I have use the jig to create a standard mortise and tenon joint. I mark out the mortise and mark the center line of the mortise on the material and align the jig to the center line and drill per istructions and then put the chisel guide that comes with the and pare the wals and coners to square and then cut the tennon on the table saw. I found it to work every time as long as my markouts are accurate,

I have done floating tenons also and they have worked out.

Never used the JessEm
