Garrard TT 40b

I am restoring a Garrard 40b TT. A part named the ring cushion has deteriated beyond repair. I need two of these. It sits above and below the thrust bearing washers on spindle shaft. Does anyone have any experience with this part, know of a source of replacement parts or material to make own.

they are basically little pads that serve to cut down the level of rumble - a bit of thin felt cut to size would do.
