Is there a cast flanged bearing housing 2 bolt or 4 bolt that fits this bearing - or another housing with an 8mm bore?

The cast bearing housings require a spherical bearing and we are not aware of any manufacturer that produce bearings as small as 8mm.
We have aluminium bearing blocks with integral bearings in 5 or 6mm bore. We are actively looking for alternatives but nothing will be available in the short term.
We would recommend using the flange type miniature bearing pressed into a suitably drilled block of aluminium or nylon to form your own bearing housing.
