Crafty's Cork Cutter

Boring a cork recess for an uplocking reel seat retainer can be a pain in the rear;
of the cork that is.

Crafty's Cork Cutter in-letting tool is easy to use with a high speed drill or lathe. The tool comes with interchangeable blades for in-letting grips for up locking seats in diameters of; .760, .810, .850, .900 and .950. These are the most common reel seat inlet sizes but blades can easily be made for this tool in any blade size needed. CAUTION! These blades are very sharp, so handle them with care when inserting them into the tool.

The long shaft at the front of the tool has a 4mm diameter but comes with a 6mm tube or can be easily built up with tape or paper to fit the bore diameter of any cork grip. The shaft is also long enough to stabilize the cutting process so the rod builder can achieve a perfect inlet every time.

If you have a lathe or access to one, that is the best way to use the cutter. Again use extreme care when using with a drill motor or similar tool.
