The bearings are encased in the big plastic washer drum, and after rudely hacking them out with the jigsaw, I used the bandsaw and then the lathe to make a cylindrical part that would fit nicely into a 'holesaw sized' hole.

This would be perfectly possible without a bandsaw or lathe, it would just take a bit longer to use a handsaw and files to cut it out...
