Art, you say the inside diameter of the tube embedded in the blank is 9mm ?

That blank might be meant for a Cigar pen. I know that PSI sells such a circuit board blank.

Why don't you get yourself a Cigar kit and measure the components so see if they would fit ?

Well .... you don't have to .... I just consulted the bushing and tube tables here on IAP.
The bushings for a Cigar are meant to fit tubes with inside diameter of 9.07mm !!!!!

So there you have it .... mystery solved.

Cigar is your answer.

Here is a link to the tables:

You will see that a Cigar kit uses tubes with an inside diameter of 0.357" = 9.07mm

Kids rule the world !!! .... eventually if not already !
