The tool itself consists of a drill guide which produces overlaping holes in the parts to be joined. The set that I used is by the origonal manufacturer. I believe the system is now owned by Rockler, so some of the comments that I make may no longer be valid.
The chief problem I encountered was the fact that with the knobs used for tightening the guide in the origonal or secondary position are too small to adequately tighten by hand. If the secondary position is not adequately torqued, the guide will slip and the holes will not be properly aligned.
It is critical that a sharp drill bit is used when drilling. Do not use a brad point bit.
When used the joints appear to be very strong.
This is not a tool for a production facility because the process of drilling is time and labor intensive.
