    Default Need help to secure a two-hole kitchen faucet

    Our disposal failed and while under the kit. sink I noticed that our two-hole faucet, one for the discharge and one for the lever/handle/valve, is loose. It seems that over the years water has gotten under and into the mounting holes for these, and the MDF/whatever frame that these secure to has distended (swelled) such that the cylindrical washers for both have questionable material to tighten-down to. They instead PIERCE the material.

    The obvious solution it seems would be flat pieces of U-shaped metal, washers if you will, that can be inserted/slid between the cylindrical metal pieces and the swollen wood, so when the faucet is tightened-down the cylinders have metal to connect with, which in turn will push against the swollen wood.

    Does this make sense to you guys? Are such things available at Big Box stores or at plumbing supply houses?

    EDIT: Wow after 10 years this style is apparently still available. The cylinder I'm talking about is at the bottom of this image, part 109110:
