    Funny I had a different spacer on my Wise chair break and have started looking too. Nothing out there. I have not contacted Wise directly. Let me know if you find anything.

          get some plastic and make your own.... but use a better grade of plastic. some plastics break down in the UV rays quicker than others, and some will crack/craze and become brittle with the wrong type of chemical being used to clean them (like simple green on plexiglass/acrylic).....

          I would suggest HDPE or acytal.... the HDPE is soft and easily worked and would last as long as the chairs, whereas the acytal/delrin is extremely hard and strong and is harder to work without the proper tools, but can be managed by determined people.

          If I had a sample piece I could mill you some for the cost of the material and shipping....

            You might find nylon washers at the hardware store, stack up however many you need to obtain the desired thickness.

              or go to where they sell plastics and get some round stock of the right size, cut pieces to length and drill a hole thru them.... there are lots of plastics suppliers/retailers on the internet, and there is always an outlet or two in the larger cities....

                You can probably get some spacers at Lowe’s, Home Depot, hardware store in their “specialty” hardware section. I just saw them actually today at Tractor Supply
