MAINTENANCE NOTICE: The site will be down for maintenance on Sunday, 29 November 2015, between 12PM (noon) and 4PM Eastern. We apologize for any inconvenience!
Not to demean the Ridgid Forums--I check them all the time--but if you go onto WoodNet Forums or Saw Mill Creek, you'll probably get a lot of responses because those sites have a lot more traffic. In fact, if you use the SEARCH function on them, you'll get your information about the beadlock system (or about anything else you want to know).
It sounds like you have answered your own question. Beadlock works very well. I've had mine for over 4 years. For best results, I would suggest you use a corded drill. Higher rpm's and will result in cleaner holes.
