I am not sure if bushings would work all that well, but it might be worth an attempt to find out.
And as to your comment about two nut traps not being necessary, I am only doing that so that the drill bit is clamped between two pieces of metal, not metal and plastic. It also helps to center the bit. You can change the number of nut traps in Customizer and/or OpenSCAD as well.
I said it in my make, but i feel maybe i should say it here too. Trivial as it is, probably a good idea to add a cylinder with holes at the right place so you can print a big one and use this cylinder to make small ones fit well.
I had a rather silly approach to holding in a bit. Just use a screw, d'oh.

Input the dimensions for the handle. Note that if you have drill bits measured in inches, you will need to change that at the top and then input your diameter AS A DECIMAL.
Insert Nuts into the nut traps
Insert the drill bit
Insert set screws. You should be able to tighten them a lot, but do remember it is plastic.
It appears on my computer that there is an issue with rendering the handle in Customizer. It cuts a small chunk out of the lower groove. It only appears in Customizer, however, once you export it as an .STL, it goes away.
