I found my corks...in my big old blue Campagnolo travel bag. (photos on web site below)

"cork stopper tapered, regular No. 1.,7/16 x 3/8 Qty 120(?), # 350360" Curtis Industires

I used he above corks all of the time. I would put them in the spoke hole, cut of the excess with a small hacksaw blade and them use a half round file to finish them off. I bought them and charged them to the team at the hardware store Main St in Ames, IA. I have about 200 left from my SRC Raleigh days as head mechanic/team equipment manager from1978-1983.
