Using Slic3r I found scaling all pieces to 2540% works and brings it to the correct size. "Tapped1.stl" though is still a little small at that scale and can almost be pushed through "NewFront1rev1.stl". I increased it to 2600% and its just a tiny bit loose but moves well especially when tightened against a phone or object.

When I open up light.stl it shows up really really small? What size is it suppose to be so that I can scale it? Thanks :-)

It should be 7.309 inches long. It may have just imported the units incorrectly and could possibly be as easy as a millimeter to inch (or inch to millimeter) conversion. You could also check to see if a 74mm ball fits where the sphero goes. Hope this helps.
