    Funny, I bought one recently as well, and I'm thinking about taking it back because there is significant wobble. At the 40mm wheel, about 0.15mm front to back, and 0.4mm side to side.

    Best bet would be plumbing places like Reece. Bunnings used to have them but I can't find it now. They still do have some 150mm fittings though.
