The 22mm bearing is derived from a standard bearing with the code 6904RS. This is a off the shelf bearing with a OD of 37mm, ID of 20mm and a width of 9mm. The 22mm Spanish bearing is made from this bearing, but the ID is machined out from 20mm to 22mm. So you cant just buy the 22mm Spanish bearing from a bearing shop.

Hmmm, there will be a bearing with a 22m ID surely, might not have the right width but OD and ID should be out there somewhere.

I just told you exactly how the 22mm Spanish is made, why the hell would a company put the time and energy into custom machining out a 20mm ID to 22mm ID if there was already an off the shelf bearing available with 22mm? The point is that the 22mm Spanish bearing is NOT an off the shelf bearing and is custom made FROM an off the shelf bearing. You are not able to buy a 22m Spanish bearing from your local bearing store without having it custom made.

The only bearing commercial available with a 22mm are not even remotely close to usable in a Spanish:

22mmx39mmx9mm
22mmx44mmx12mm
22mmx56mmx16mm
