There's no need to clamp down anything that's been correctly bonded with contact adhesive.

Natural cork should never be used under adjusting screws or other linkages as the screw tips and linkages will chew through it in next to no time, plus the fact natural cork creates too much friction on sliding linkages which will make the action creaky and sluggish or cause things to bind up. Oboes that use nylon or teflon tipped adjusting screws don't need silencing material under them.

Natural cork has its place for key feet as it's easy to adjust by sanding (if need be) to get the regulation and venting just right.
