Or using the skate bearings you have there, find an aluminum or pvc pipe with a thickness that would fit the gap and shave a ring off the end of the pipe?
That's exactly what I was thinking. Then also get some washers with 8mm id/ 28mm od to cover/keep the pvc seated. Good Job drmcgyver!
Thanks! The washer would be a nice finishing touch. Sanding the pvc to get it nice and grippy would probably help a layer of loctite red stick (similar to pediglide's original suggestion). If the pvc is a tight enough fit it might not even be necessary.
