Add block for ball bearing and choose part
Recommend 0.250" ID, plain vanilla ball bearing (read: cheap) or use simple journal bearing

Use bushing instead of bearing (overkill)

Low profile (3/8" thickness) flange not necessary, but is good if we have the thickness. If omitting the flange, we might be able to cut down brass or aluminum tubing as a low cost wear surface.
