Configuration not in the database

We like to reluctantly use toolbox here. I am trying to make a #6-32 Machine Screw Hex Nut with a 1/4" width. We are set up to use configurations and not copies or parts. I have noticed that there is no area to specify width on these guys. The default width for this size is 5/16" => not gonna work! Every time I try to change the dimension in the configuration of that part it goes right back to being 5/16". Even after I rebuild, save and close it!

So my question: can I make custom toolbox parts (parts that do not exist in the database) without having to create a new part file and/or edit the database?
