Did you try ace hardware for the fittings? I'm pretty sure all 6" PVC has
the same OD. Only the wall thickness varies.
I'm sure if you talk to a plumbing supply house they can order you some.
Might take a minimum size order though.
I don't live anywhere near MN, but if you don't get any other answers, the
following may help.
I used 4" S&D for all but the main trunk line (5" spiral) in my D/C system.
The pipe and basic fittings came from Home Depot. I did, however, buy
several fittings from:
The quality and variety of the fittings was better than HD, including having
90 degree LONG radius elbows.

I found only (1) place that had it. Call some of the plumbing supply houses
(industrial) and ask. The place I found wasn't listed in the yellow pages.
They didn't carry the "thin" stuff, just the next grade up. This was fairly
heavy. If I could still locate the thin stuff I'd get it instead. The
fittings are all the same except for the really heavy (sched. 40). After
buying three 45 wyes at $20 each I found McMaster had them a lot cheaper.
In this part of the Country, Mid-West, the thin 4" PVC pipe is readily
available at all Farm Supply Stores, Rural King, Big R, TSC, etc. About $4
per 10 ft. length. It is plenty good for dust collector system. Mine has
been in use for close to 20 years.
Others have said HD - ours in this area doesn't have it, only Sched 40.
Oddly enough the Lowes here did have it, in 4", for a little over $4/10'.
And more oddly, all of the Ace Hardware's I checked had it too.
