Thank you all for the replies.
My practice of a wedge under the rear frame would seem to be the best for me.
The rods that were mentioned wouldn't be a solution on my camera as the thing to which one would fasten the rod, the front standard, also has some wobble. If the two frames were joined by the rod(s) the would move in unison (admittedly only to the extent allowed by the frame with the least lash).

Not with a tailboard camera!
"If the two frames were joined by the rod(s) the would move in unison (admittedly only to the extent allowed by the frame with the least lash)."
Again, a tailboard camera has the rigid front standard. It is also not a question of the weakest link determining absolute stability as the locked front standard/rods/rear standard will reduce the underneath flexibility of the standards with the base.
My camera, the one with the wobble, doesn't have a fixed (rigid) front standard. One can focus with either the front or rear frames and both frames swing.

Also try the View Camera Store to see if they have them in stock.
BUT, 1mm? Really? My 8x20 Korona is far worse, and you'd swear the thing could never take a sharp image, yet it does so time and time again. Try it as-is and look at your negs closely, you may well not need to do anything. BTW, I've always felt some cameras were too rigid and vibrated like a tuning fork with big shutters.

I steal time at 1/125th of a second, so I don't consider my photography to be Fine Art as much as it is petty larceny.
Alan's kit is extremely functional, as previously mentioned. His typical stabilizer bar fits in bushings in the top of the front and rear standards. He recently designed an additional lateral kit for my ULF that goes from the bottom of the rear standard to the top of the front standard. In concert with his standard kit, the additional stabilizer is a welcome addition that I highly recommend.

I am a newly minted 8x10 owner, and my Korona 8x10 wobbles just a tiny bit, but that's because the runners that go in the rail slot were loose and badly misaligned. Bending one back into shape and tightening the screws fixed it. I have since used teflon lube on all the parts of the camera that slide against each other and she's smooth as butter and quite tight now.
I'm not familiar with the Korona, but I would imagine that it is like a Kodak 2D: the rail clamps are brass that has been bent to form tabs that run in grooves in the wood. The clamping action is crosswise, so there is nothing to lodge the tabs on an upper or lower surface of the rail or groove. Because of the short span of the clamps and the height of the front standards, it takes very little play in the grooves to permit a considerable movement at the top of the standard. On the other hand, too little play and wood expansion due to humidity can bind up the system.
A trick that sometimes works in situations like this is to use a narrow strip of shim stock, wrapped around, glued, or soldered onto the brass tab. A good automotive supply store (or, better, McMaster-Carr) will supply brass in incremental thicknesses starting at 0.001 inches. It can be cut with ordinary scissors, and trial and error may let you find a good compromise between lack of play and free sliding. One advantage of this fix is that, carefully done, it is reversible without damage to the camera.
I hope that you don't find the grooves to be tapered, so that a good fit in some places causes binding in others!
Now that is a very good idea. I even have a whole box of formed flat bronze (not brass) spacing pieces made for oversizing bearing shells in crankshafts which can be cut to the right size! The system would work on tailboards where the rear standard tabs run in an outside groove in the geared track.
Whilst the central rod system from Alan looks very useful (alumininium rods are stiffer than brass - and weigh a good deal less than bronze) I couldn't help smiling at the following:
