Left hand M4 bolt

Looking for some M4 bolts with a left handed thread.

Found a drill chuck bolt on amazon but its about 15 including delivery.

There are some left hand rod ends on ebay too but are around 5 each and not sure if I butcher them for my purpose.

Anyone know of a cheaper source.

Always taught to look from another angle....

What do you need it for?

Could the mating part be changed?

Could someone with a lathe make you one?

Its for removing a bolt from a recessed hole.

Unfortunately the part cannot be changed, it needs to be left handed for it to work and cannot be bigger than M4.

Someone could make the part on a lathe but Im sure it would be very fiddly to do and thought it would be more cost and time efficient to try and locate a source as it might not be a one off. If I can't find any for a reasonable price then I may be asking kindly for anyone with thread cutting tools to make me a few.

It would need to be one suitable for removing a left hand threaded stud, wouldn't it ?
