RE: Shaft Extensions / Panel Bearings

The original RM-5 from Music Reference used bearings as you mentioned in the OP and onece we solved certain issues -below - they worked quite well-
the only issue we had was galling then the bearing and shaft were the same material-
The comment above regarding sizing is appropriate and will - if addressed properly - make a difference in the Knob feel-

Delrin or PTFE (Teflon(r)) make excellent bearings but can be a challenge to machine correctly-
Happy Listening
