Need an OFF Bearing Size (for MiX)

I stupidly in my last redo of my MiX project just made the bearing I was using 1mm larger.. since in the past this worked... however I seem to have gotten into a size that is not made. I need a ID of 6mm and an OD of 9mm they make a 5x9 and a 6x10... I know it CAN be made because the cross section would be the same as the 5x8 and other bearings. So its possible they already exist, if anyone knows of a place, or a chassis/brand, that has these please let me know. The place that was going to custom make them for me, is flaking out...

And yes I tried Boca and VXB... they wont stock the size.

Have you tried to measure in SAE sizes? Sometimes metric won't fit, but a standard inch measurement does.
I got nothing.

It's not likely though. Drac, I've searched for 6x9 bearings since forever, searched again and still didn't find anything so I'm chalking it up to the guess that manufacturers start using thicker steel in 6mm ID bearings.

Can your design really not fit a 6x10x2.5 bearing? They're all over the place thanks to Xmod Evos.

I am going to just have to cram in the 6x10x3.... I just dont want to move the parts that need to be moved, and a smaller OD would allow me a larger part elsewhere... it sucks... just another reason to delay working on the stupid thing.
