All about Clarinets / Re: NEWBIE REPAIR QUERY

I thought of getting a kit but just couldn't really afford one. 
I'll keep an eye out for used kits/tools.
I've ordered the cork so will see how I make out...
Thanks for all your input.

No, nothing has been ordered yet, I've had some medical issues.
I'll likely order the cork today.
I'm going to try to make a bench peg to use.

I'll order the next size up, 1/16" thick instead of the 3/64 as mentioned above.
Cheers!

Cheers Dave,
I've spent hours over the last few days trying to register to place an order with Music Medic but have been unsuccessful.
The Music Medic website keep rejecting my registration - keeps saying Incorrect CAPTCHA - I have literally tried at least 50 times.
I cleared my cache, rebooted my computer tried a different email etc. but nothing worked.
I won't be bothering with their website any more!
I've registered with another supplier, Instrument Clinic - it took less than a minute.
Can you tell me what thickness of cork I need to order for a Yamaha 26II clarinet?

Thanks jdbassplayer
My 26II needs at least two tenon corks maybe more and around here it's a minimum of $35 for each one to get them installed.
I've watched 4 or 5 different videos on how to replace them & have been looking at kits on eBay
Hopefully, someone has had experience with some of the available corks & or cork kits on eBay

Thanks Modernicus
I just tried Music Medic but their site seems to be down..something about maintenance.
I was looking at some of the kits on eBay but wanted to be sure I got the right cork & thickness.

Hi,
I need some new cork on a Yamaha 26II but can't afford to get them done professionally.
I'm retired on a fixed income but I have a young son who plays piano, guitar, and sings and picked up this clarinet for him to try.
I've decided to install the corks myself and have watched a few You-Tube videos.
I want to do it right so looking for any advice including type & thickness of cork to use.
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks.
