radiator leveling feet?

I have an 1913 craftsman style house which has the original 1-pipe steam system with CI radiators. Under most of the radiators I have this little adjustable feet, they are 2 piece with a threaded rod in the center, so turning the top piece adjusts the height of the foot, to pitch the radiator. Some of the radiators are missing them, and I'm trying to locate a place to buy them, but I can't even figure out what to search for. I don't have a picture handy, but maybe someone knows what they are called or a website where I can order them from? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

Can you just shim up one end of the radiator?

I could make wodden blocks or something, but I like the look of them and I wanted to see if I could find some of them, maybe at an architectural salvage place. I remodeled the room, and removed 4 layers of old flooring, so there's more than a shim needed to get the radiators at the correct level.

Todd, do they need to look nice ? are they highly visible ?

Take a picture of what you are looking for ... I know of at least one place to get leveling feet, but they may not be what I think you need ...

Something like this work?

If these will work but are ugly, mount them in the back... use the others that you have in the front.

Mashine nuts from the hdw store are a good fit as they approx the same shape and cheap just select size you feel is right for your need.
