My measurements of mandrel diameters with and without bead release:

with: 2mm
without: 1.5mm

with: 2.5mm
without: 2mm

with: 3mm
without: 2.5mm

The 0.5mm extra thickness of a mandrel does make a difference. I would try the 5/64" to make your pressed focal beads, and in your listings, you can write that the beads have 2.5mm holes.
