In that case you need the diagonal measurement of the cylindrical end.

A 3/16" hole 3/16" deep should cover it.

You can make a mockup of one string path to test it out, and use an E string to check the minimum size of the hole needed to pass one through. The locking windings will double the string thickness close to the ball.
