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.

You'll need to remove more cork

The .810" could work.  Does the front hood have a lip on it?

From the pictures, I think the Lemke LC1 hood is a circle with no lip.

 

Goduster mentioned custom blades could be made for any hood size. I'm not sure how to do this. I don't have the tools or experience.

The hood does have a lip on it.  All you have to do is loosen the blades and slide out the bottom of each equally to get to the desired ID and tighten it back up
