No great original idea here but for anyone that hasn't thought of it yet and has a set of the Stewmac bearings, I made this holder to keep them in order. Before they were just thrown in a bag and I got tired of hunting for the right size every time I needed one. I just threaded the ends of piece of 3/16" rod.

They used to come with a plastic nut as you have done. I put my cutters and bearings into a small cabinet and have them marked for the width of cut. It can get confusing with all those bearing options but it sure makes for a nice fit and finish.
Nice work and I am sure you will see an improvement in the quality of the end results. Good tool help with good results.
