Here are a couple more options when you are using two oboes with different size reed wells:

1) Tear off a piece of cigarette paper the size you want and wrap it around the cork of the tube. You can seal it with saliva or fingernail polish on the outer edge.

2) Put some fingernail polish inside the reed well that is larger. This works very well and lasts quite a long time before it wears off. And, you do not need to modify the cork to fit into the larger reed well.

I have done both of the above and found that they both work well, but I prefer #2 since you can use the reed "as is" for both oboes.
