    Use whichever method you feel most comfortable with, and most importantly, safest.

    Or you could make life easy and get a 13mm OD standoff. They will have a partly drilled threaded hole in them that could easily be drilled through to 8MM. Many electronics places sell them, but here is a company that makes them as an illustration of what I mean. http://lyntron.com/catalog/LynTron/B12

    For a quick & dirty prototype you could shave a gluestick so it fits in the wheel then drill and 8mm hole through it & screw it on.
    Rough but quick.

    You need to make an adapter on the Lathe just like I did for the propeller on this go kart.
