Hello all,
I need to find a source to get some water key corks for my Selmer Radial ll. They are smaller than what i can find. They measure 6mm or 1/4 inch. Any advice/help will be appreciated.

RC

Stick cork - you cut to the correct length . Cheap but the shipping will cost you.

If all else fails, go to Hobby Lobby and spend $5 for a leather punch set. Then buy a sheet of cork. If you cannot find the correct thickness, you can glue up layers with contact cement. Gasket cork will last for a while in a pinch.

Rmc61 - If you have any larger corks, you can sand them down using 150 grit sandpaper. You can sand the diameter and thickness as needed.
