Table rocking issue

Our dining table from day one has rocked at the base.

It has the standard silver posts (2) legs the snugly fit into the silver cone

However the floor cones never fit well and rocke from front to back only. The table doesn't move from left to right.

Any ideas on how to fix?

Remove the table top and legs. Then re-insert the legs (without the table top). Test each leg for back-and-forth movement with your hand. Try it again by switching the legs. You may have to replace one or both of the floor receptacles and/or legs or attempt to tighten the fit by expanding the tapered part of the leg.

Almost all of these end up rocking due to traveling with the weight of the table constantly moving back and forth with bumps in the road. I used to remove my single-post table during travel and put it upside-down on the bed to keep it from moving during travel.

....or, stick a toothpick in the front or back of both legs as shims. They can be re-used or replaced between trips

If you need larger shims take apart a cheap clothes pin. Each side is slanted enough to start it into the loose opening. Lightly tap it into place. Reuse or replace as necessary.

I cut soda cans in strips on the 2 poles base. That worked on the bottom. Now I put them in the top at the table it will work better. Not a easy to get
them to stay when putting them in.

I never travel with the table up so not sure why these poles are like this in the 1st place... URG.
