 Rejuvenating compressed staple cork
Author: mberkowski 
Date:   2019-11-10 05:13

My Loree oboe's reed well is on the wider side compared to other instruments I've owned and I find some of my natural cork staples are really loose in it. Now that the weather is drying I just had one actually leak from the reed well.

Can anything be done to rejuvenate the cork so it fits a little more tightly? I've wrapped a couple of turns of teflon plumbing tape on one and that stops the leak but it's messy. Soaking the cork didn't make an appreciable difference. These staples are relatively new and the nickel-silver is in fine condition so I'd rather not discard them.
