    Mating a cylindrical shaft inside of another cylindrical shaft

      Hello, I am trying to create the assembly shown in the pictures below:

      In regard to the box which holds the cylindrical shafts, I am wondering if I have correctly mated the cylinders to each other, and the cylinders to the box. I have attached my current attempt. So, one cylinder is larger than the other and has a hole through it, which the other cylinder fits into. I reasoned that I need to somehow lock the larger cylinder to the box in order for the smaller cylinder to fit inside. I tried mating the hole in the larger cylinder parallel to the holes in the box which the smaller cylinder will go through. I don't know if this is correct, so any advice would be appreciated.
