I have designed an adjustable bearing holder:https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2974994
So far, the friction goes up to unacceptable levels before the play is eliminated (the play is mostly between the bearing and the holder at this point). I think if I fill the space between the bearing and the holder with glue, and clamp it hard to the shaft, when the glue hardens, I should be able to loosen the clamp to the point where there isjust a slight drag it should work without play.
