No pun intended.  Too bad you didn't ask at BLUG, I always carry a few
extras with me.  I haven't purchased any new ones in several years, but
when I last did I got like $40 worth of them.  At the time, I had called
IBM because I didn't want the cats-tounge ones, I wanted one newer
"mushroom" types that my box had shipped with.  They pointed me at this
aftermarket place that sold them, but I no longer have the URL around.

Google to the rescue:


I prefer the ones on the bottom, but IBM said the only place I could get
replacements, again several years ago, was this third-party site.  The
"soft rim" I find works best for me.

Maybe this was the place:


If not, it was someplace with a fairly similar ghetto-look web-site.  $14
for 4.
