Low Profile Round Electrical box-where to find?


Hi All,

I am trying to center a new light fixture in my bathroom and a PVC drain pipe from the bathroom above it is in my way. I'm having difficulties finding a low profile round old work box. I need it to be 2inches or less in depth to the sheet rock face. Any suggestions on where I can find one that will fit and work?

Thanks,
John

It's also called a "pancake" box.
