Thought I'd give this a shot, and it worked out pretty well! Between the press fit and some loctite, I think they ought to stay in there just fine. Now I think I'll sit down, relax, and get my eyes uncrossed for a bit, that's some of the smallest stuff I've turned out on the lathe for a while. Thanks for the inspiration Luke, I think I just needed somebody else to suggest it to make it seem worth trying!
