Beadlock Pro

I made the mistake of going into a woodworking store this morning unsupervised. With a craftsman dining table and chairs looming in my immediate future, I figured it might be worth trying an easier method of loose tenon joinery. I bought the full kit, the 1/2” upgrade and the 1/2” router bit to make the tenons.

Does anyone have any experience with this kit? I think it may be easier to drill mortises instead of routing them, and I’ve got hundreds of them. I think this will work nicely on the chairs, especially. Any advice is greatly appreciated.

After I posted this, I belatedly did a LJ Search for “beadlock”. Lot’s of good info. If anyone else has additional info, I’d appreciate any feedback.

Thanks for the non-information lcurrent. Anyhoo, I drove through the driving rain to return the Beadlock Pro. Evidently, it’s on sale online only at Rockler, so I had to burn gas and time to not be rewarded for visiting their retail location. I’m starting to build an attitude problem about Rockler because of their lack of customer service. They evidently now own the Beadlock system. If I decide to re-purchase it and have to pay shipping after visiting their store 20 miles away twice, I’m going to be miffed. Please pardon my ranting.
