They are bolted down to the floor. Have you tried tightening the bolts?

I had to replace the metal flange with a plastic one. I have tightened the bolts all the way. The base doesn't have complete contact with the floor.

Check that the flange is not sitting above the floor and that the floor is level.

Also check that the floor material is not soft from rot and is the point of movement

If the flange is not contacting the floor it will wobble. Solution is to either insert washers or spacers between the flange and the floor to make sure the flange and the floor become "one", after after firmly tightening. As said before by HowieE No Rot!

Thanks everyone. All new wood in the entire area, so no rot! I like the spacer idea - I can pick up some plastic ones at home depot so they won't rot.
