I'm confused with this new listing of corks with metric measurements... I just want the standard #9 cork and tell me its length in inches.

[I know, I know. I'll get used to it just like I've done with the metric sized bottles.]

The diameter for standard #9 natural (one piece) cork is 24mm, but allowance is made for harder corks such as agglomerated and 1+1, which is 23.5mm.

standard lengths of 38mm is 1-1/2", 45mm is 1-3/4"

Thanks, that's what I needed. I know I could have looked it up myself but just had an "attitude" this morning. Same one I had when we started to switch to spoked wheels awhile back.
