      Moogie on ebay has those from time to time.
      Grounds, Grounds, Grounds Replace them things.
      Divorces, Great Coffee, and Electrics, all start with GOOD Grounds.

      Where are my grounds ?

      You could also use a simply hose clamp from the hardware store. That's how I fixed mine last year and have had no problems since. The cage was still intact; my rubber seal had cracked and broken off allowing the bearing cage to slide down the column and cause an up/down wobble. Quick, easy, cheap fix.
