bearings should be a tolerance or engineering fit

If you are making something custom turn the shaft to fit the bearings, having played with vintage engines other items don't cheap out on bearings I tend to stick with SKF or Timken

Google simply bearings

we have no context here so difficult what to suggest
we need to know size[model car real car router or big machine] 'load expected performance needs
some are bolted on some are captive some are friction
some are sealed some are greased
just realized you said miniature so no heat in fitting :dunno:
