Are you talking about a 1-7/16” insert in a 1-3/8” hole? That is what I am, typically, using. I drill the hole with a 1-3/8” forstner bit about 1/4” deep and the insert, with the rubber gasket, fits in tightly. I’ve not found a 1-3/8” insert. This seems to be the standard.

The best part about installing clock inserts is how easy it is to time your progress…

Depending on wood species , some have been a little harder to insert the clock into. I just lightly sanded the hole (breaking the sharp edge) and applied some paste wax to the rubber thingy….done : )
