 Re: glue for cork

IMHO, since pre-cut tenon cork is available from so many vendors, I dot see any advantage in trying to re-glue old cork or use teflon tape.
Even if the linkage key has to be removed, the whole thing takes under 30 min. for a non- professional to do.
I believe I was advised (on this forum) to use 3/64" thick cork, which worked fine and on one or two occasions I used 1/16" cork, that I had to sand down slightly.
This is the case when doing it once, right, saves any headaches later.
Also, if not sure, replacing a tenon cork on a plastic clarinet (if you got one) as a training exercise would give more confidence when fixing wooden clarinet.
