The problem of mounting the outer races of ball bearings so that they will not work lose, rotate, and wear against their mounting holes, is known in the art, e.g., Xerox Corporation U.S. Patent 4,804,277 by Steve Counoupas, and references therein. Specifically, in Fig 2 this patent shows a two offset screw and metal retainer washer holddown of a bearing outer race to prevent its rotation.
