if its not near the top, id use a sealant, like something silicone based to temporarily fix it. if you have a friend that can weld, maybe they can help

i dont even know where the leak is, but its always been pretty wobbly. all i know is it used to smoke like a champ, i set it up the exact same way i always did, but the flavour burnt and there was hardly any smoke. tried it again, same thing.

how do you know there is a leak then

what you need to do, is plug your stem from one end, exhale, and see if theres airflow, if there is and you cant find it, fill up your bathtub with water, submerge the stem. plug one end, exhale, if you see where the air comes out, then you know. otherwise, your stem is fine.

if the issue is the seal between the base and the stem, no biggy, tons of ways to get around that as you wait for a new grommet, wet papertowel...cloth, foil, electrical tape....

it could also be your hose....which has temporary fixes too.

plug one end of your hose, exhale into the other, if there is movement, theres a leak in the hose, keep exhaling till you find it, use some tape to cover it up as you wait for a new hose.
----
if a leak is not your problem, then it could be your setup.

the best of us still setup poorly sometimes, maybe thats all it was.

check the purge valve, the ball bearing may be missing, if so, you can just use some rolled up tissue paper to block it, but it also means you can take it out when you want to purge

BB's(airsoft works best) are a good replacement for the ball bearing, some people even prefer the airsoft bb to the standard ball bearing.
