Anyone have the straight dope on pressing bushings into place?

I am fitting the frog linkage to a cannondale scalpel, and need to get four bushings pressed in snug as pies (# 9 in the pdf below)

They're a very tight fit, any tips on getting them in? I'm guessing a vice might be in order, but I ain't got one. Any improvised solutions most welcome.

Hardware store:

Get a bolt, if possible same (or slightly smaller) outside diameter as the #8 piece would be ideal.

Get a nut and two washers.

You just made yourself a bushing press!

Know what I'm saying?

Bolt-> washer-> bushing ->frame ->washer -> nut and now slowly crank it in one bushing at a time.

If that does not make sense let me know. Think how a headset press works. Much better than a vice or c-clamps.
