Suitable for Poppers
I recently bought a number of same-sized stopper corks of each grade to assess ONLY their suitability for making fishing poppers. I bought sizes 00, 1, 2, and 4 in all grades. Size 0 Extra Select were out of stock so I only had Premium and Standard. In size 3, I only purchased Extra Select corks so I could compare them to the 150+ size 3 extremely high quality corks I already own. Rather than write a review under each size and grade, I will give a general review of the three grades across all the corks I ordered (105 in total) and post the exact same review under each size and grade. First off, the photos of each grade provided on the website are very accurate. By viewing them, you should have a good idea of what the pits and longer lenticels look like.
In order to make my own assessment across grades as regards their suitability for use as poppers, I devised a five-point rating system based on how much, if any, filling of the pits are required to before painting. A rating of 5 means no filling was needed when applying between one and three coats of mid-quality paint (i.e., the paint typically filled any pits, sometimes completely, sometimes so that only dimples showed.) By mid-quality paint, I mean something on the order of Behr Premium Plus Ultra interior/exterior paint (I used Medium Yellow in my test). A rating of 4 signified that three coats did not cover the defects without minor filling of a cork filling product, but the finished product still looked good without filling. A rating of three signified that some filling was required for the finished product to look good. A rating of 2 signified that the cork had defects that required significant filling before painting. Finally, a rating of 1 indicated a cork that was unsatisfactory due to a defect near one end of the cork that could only be fixed by cutting the cork to form a flat base.
The results of my assessment follow: 80% of the Extra Select corks were rated as quality 5 and 20% as quality 4. For the Premium corks, 15% were quality 5, 60% were quality 4, and 25% were quality 3. For the Standard corks, 15% were quality 5, 30% were quality 4, 45% were quality 3, and 10% were quality 1 (in these cases needing to be cut to form a flat base). If you tie commercially, choose Extra Select to minimize your filling work. For my personal use, I’d use all grades, and I would not fill any corks in quality levels 3-5 (I had no quality level 2 corks, so I can’t speak about them). I used to spend the necessary time to produce commercial-quality cork poppers, but in 60 years of fishing poppers, I found the fish do not care whether there are pits or not!
Service is excellent; shipping is fast.

Clarifying My Ratings
To clarify my star ratings in my recent reviews as regards the suitability of the three grades of stoppers for making fishing poppers: the Standard grade—which I rated with 3 stars—are suitable for poppers; the Premium grade—which I rated with 4 stars—as a group make very good poppers; the Extra Select grade—which I rated with 5 stars—as a group make excellent poppers.

Perfect fit, perfect transaction
They were so helpful with deciding which size would work for my little S&P shakers. The customer service gets it right. Correspondence is answered very quickly. Delivery was prompt. I highly recommend this company - and I don't do that often.

Cork Fits Great
My husband found an old Castoria bottle on our property -- wanted a cork to complete it -- YOUR company was awesome -- the cork fits perfectly -- fast, free shipping. PERFECT

Fred D, Georgia - 4/24/2020
Just what I needed...and fast, free delivery!
I could not find this size cork, to replace old ones in vintage spice shakers, anywhere around me. Glad I found WidgetCo online! They got here much faster than promised and were the perfect fit.
Susan S., Seattle, WA - 4/23/2020
size 1 cork, perfect size
I ordered a variety of corks, size 0,1,2,3 because they were cheap enough. The size 1 fit my current project but I am sure I will find some use for the others. Best part...no shipping charge!!

Formal gold salt & Pepper shaker stoppers
Since I could not accurately measure the opening of a 60 year old formal gold salt and pepper shakers, I bought 3 different sizes:, sizes 00, 0, and 1.
The number 1 size did the trick and fir perfectly.. It was worth the extra cost to get the variety of sizes. I'm happy with the results
Tom, Lodi, NJ - 11/2/2019
Simple REAL cork stoppers!
So inexpensive the shipping was more than the product and still nominally spent. Good thing, since I bought the wrong size! Still, the size I need is not available in my city; and I don't mind...bet the corks I bought come in handy for something. Re-ordering correct size.
Marty L, Tucson, AZ - 5/20/2019
I needed some small corks and wasn't really sure which size would fit correctly. I am so pleased that WidgetCo doesn't have a minimum $ order! I ordered 4 corks which only came out to $1.23 and shipping was minimal. One of the corks was a perfect fit and of very good standard quality. So pleased with my transaction!
Stephen B., Eugene, OR - 4/1/2019
Any cork you want
This is a fantastic source for a hard-to-find-at-a-hardware-store product..and so reasonably -- insanely reasonably -- priced that I could order 2 sizes so if one didn't fit the other would. THANKS SO MUCH.

Great for salt & pepper shakers

Perfect for Antique Salt & Pepper Shakers
I bought several sizes because all the salt and pepper shakers have different hole sizes. I ordered several different sizes, not knowing which ones would fit. They were so inexpensive that it was worth it. The corks came very quickly, and I I am very pleased with the product. I was able to use several of the sizes.
Bonnie P, Maryland - 10/2/2018
I ordered cork stoppers for test tubes and tiny glass bottles I use in my art projects. The instructions and measurements supplied on the website made it easy to get the right fit! Thanks!
Cindy K, Indianapolis, IN - 8/14/2018
A good source for corks!
I am a second-hand dealer and I buy and sell salt & pepper shakers. Many vintage shakers do not have corks and they sell better when they do. I am happy to have found WIDGETCO for my cork needs!
Angeline N., Chicago - 6/19/2018
I found this site very easy to navigate and it seems to be very well designed. The sizing charts are extremely helpful and accurate. I bought size #s 0 &1 to fit salt and pepper shakers. They fit perfectly. Price is fantastic and the shipping is quick. I would recommend this company to anyone.

Corks to replace salt and pepper shakers.
This week, I ordered corks, sizes 0, 1, 3 and 12, for the replacement of missing corks on antique salt and peppers. The charts on the web site were easy to use and accurate. The corks were of a good quality, arrived early and all fit the shakers I ordered them for. I would not hesitate to recommend this site.

Stoppers for salt shakers
Excellent product and excellent service
Peter H, Pennsylvania - 10/6/2014
Just what I needed to help me clean my rifles.
I collect and shoot Military Surplus Rifles from all over the world. Most of the surplus ammunition is corrosive. If left for very long the salts left by the ammunition after firing will ruin the barrel . I use the Size 1 corks to plug the end and fill the barrel from the breach end with as hot a mass of water as possible. let it sat for a few minutes. Pull the cork, drain and plug it again and repeat several times. Then continue cleaning as normal. The corks are just the right size for .30 caliber barrel's.

WidgetCo is awesome
Got my various corks. If a cork can look beautiful, these do. They are consistent, well made, and without flaw. The corks arrived quickly and with great packaging. I'm very happy with my purchase. True professionals.

Love these guys!
Consistent product, fast shipping AND they helped me figure out how to get a cork out of my pepper shaker. Now that's customer service. 5 stars all the way!

Size 1 cork stoppers-standard
Looking at the screen picture the stoppers look good size. But when I received them they were very tiny. I wish the sizing or picture was more to scale.
