Hobart N50 vintage copper bowl insert not fitting?

So the N50 finally arrived back from MixedUpJake, after having a full motor rewind and everything... ( long story.. more on that later)

 

and for some reason, the Copper insert bowl i bought off ebay doesn't fit in the bowl.

 

The bowl fits the mixer perfectly.

 

Is there a 'different' bowl this is meant for?  a 5.5 qt bowl???

 

 

sorry, i don't know where else to put this...

I have no idea who makes the bowl. it says "Made in Korea" so i doubt it's a hobart. i don't see any NSF stampings on it anywhere. maybe the dimensions are just barely off??? I have taken some pictures and i'm uploading them but it looks like the stainless bowl is just over a hair 8 1/8" of an inch or so. THe copper one is larger in that case. I could not find any stampings or markings ANYWHERE on the copper bowl, so i have no idea who manufactured it.

which is the holy grail of copper bowls..  so maybe I will just sell this thing.  anybody interested in it?  I will probably take it to williams sonoma and sears and see if it fits any bowls. haha.

 

once i do, i'll get a pic or something, and go from there.

 

unless of course, i need two copper bowls or something.
