Default table saw arbor bearings

I was trying my new bearings out and slipping them in the arbor housing and notice they slip in with not much effort. They are a good tight fit on the shaft though. Does anyone have experience with bearings and how tight they should fit? This size was the correct size for this job... 6202RS bearings. I thought maybe you had to press both in with a lot of pressure but I hear some can have a slip fit also..but how much is a slip fit? Pressing in and slipping in by hand is acceptable? I made a video to get a better idea.

Thanks..I did not know they made Loctite for bearings. This should do the trick.

I put the new bearings in and used the Loctite bearing retainer. I am noticing though there is a very tiny amount of slop in the bearings when you pull the shaft to the sides...I am thinking maybe :001 to .002. These are Timken Federal Mogul bearings and cost about $20 each so they are not the cheap imports. Is it normal for new bearings to have a tiny amount of play like this? Also do the bearings make any sounds when you spin them even though there brand new? I am noticing a really low pitched sound inside one of the bearings when you spin it. No major squeal or chirp or anything like that though. Any input and comments would be greatly appreciated.
