steering column help needed

Im using a 66 buick steering column in my project. I'm reassembling after paint and on this column it uses a sheet metal band with a pinch bolt that goes around the 3/4 shaft at the base. Its next to the lower bearing to secure the shaft in place so the whole shaft wont pull up. The band is trashed and im looking for another alternative. Maybe some sort of collar that secures with a set screw. Any idea where to pick up something like that?

Most hardware stores carry shaft collars with a set screw in them for a couple bucks.

I have used a two piece billet Alum. heater hose clamp, they work good and look good. Any hotrod supply place should have them.
