Oh, nothing! I'm just saying the bearing won't come out. The wood can rub, but I don't see that as much of an issue.

I'm have to make a number of those an exact size and I'm planning to use my router circle jig to cut the OD, then build a fixture on my router table with a 1/4" cove bit to cut the groove.
Oh, I CNC routed it in two parts, one fits in the other making a kind of spool shape.
