An affordable solution compared to the Festool Domino. Takes a little getting used to, but it's a lot faster than some other methods.

great for big joints
the only reason this doesn't get 5 stars from me is that you have to buy the tenons as Rockler don't sell a cutter to make your own in this size.

Great little kit for the price!
This was the final addition to the Beadlock kit. I now have all three sizes. Apart from the time it takes to drill the holes and clean them up, I love this system. Recently had to drill 28 sets of 1/2" Beadlocks to join three 2x6 boards into a table top. It took a while, but the joints are really solid. Definitely a great option if you're not making hundreds of loose tenons joints.
The complete kit.

1/2 inch beadlock guideblock
I have discovered that the right line of my guide block is too far to the right. See the picture that shows the 1/2 inch compared with the 3/8 and note the distance of the right line from the edge of the guide block. The half inch block is the one in the left of the photo (see pic #1). The result is that it throws frames off by at least 1/32 of an inch (see pic #2). One must adjust so that the line on your stock is slightly to the right of the line on the block.

Drill bushing was too small for included drill
I could not drill through the bushing with the included drill until I ground the diameter of the drill smaller. This was extremely frustrating and disappointing.

I am looking forward to saving time on tenoning. I have a large dining room table to make, and I felt that 3/8" would not be heavy enough for leg attachment.

It's what my husband wanted.

The accessories included for the 1/2 beadlock indicate a 3/8 drill bit . Should it be a 1/2 inch instead?
Thomas A on Aug 30, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Yes. The bit must exactly match the hole in the guide block.
