more annoying was the fact that they're a couple of millimeters

you think is a 8500 (110 mm long) really be a 8507 (2.8 mm longer)?
Might you also have a 8506 (1.4 mm shorter)? Just thinking aloud!
But, yes, the 8505 (220 mm long) is twice the 8500, though there is
one less tie on the 8505 (I'd never noticed that before).
