Default shaft extender

I'm thinking to put volume pots and rotary selector close to the rear panel of my preamp. I've read that I can use a shaft extender made of either a rod, stainless steel tubing or plastic tubing. But, the problem is the front panel where I will install the knob. How can I mount the extender at the front panel "tightly but rotating freely"? Any thoughts on this?

There is also a special sleeve bearing mounting accessory that lets you run the extension through the panel with no rattle and good feel.

A rubber grommet through the front panel is cheap and easily available.
