I've thought about purchasing a Crafty cutter to install reel seats of different manufacturers. Eventually I'd like to use a Lemke LC1 reel seat in several builds. The LC1 seat is listed as needing a 25/32" (.781) recess. The Crafty cutter has blades to cut diameters .760, .810, .865, .900, .950 inches.
After using the .760 blades, would I need to remove more cork material, or can I try for a press fit? I know cork can split.
