I'm looking for a single (one, uno, un, enn) M6 nut with a left handed/reverse thread

It's to fix my blender. I can buy a new one for $35 but it seems a waste when I can just fix it by replacing the missing nut. 

I've called in to a number of commercial nuts and bolt suppliers here in Hamilton (there seems to be quite a few) but no one can help. Some can order them in but there are minimum quantities.

Plan B is to buy a set of 4 from eBay at a cost of around $13 or 50 for $25 - better than buying a new blender I guess :-(

The annoying thing is I remember finding an m6 nut on the kitchen floor not long ago and threw it out thinking I had a whole jar of them not realising where the nut was from or that it was a reverse thread.

Hey, have you listed a price, location and how much shipping would be to other parts of New Zealand? Also if you are asking for a PM make sure your Privacy settings allow your account to receive PM otherwise people can't contact you. Also note if you are selling something we ask you to offer to other members first. Links to private sales (including Trade Me posts) aren't accepted anymore and will be removed.

I was replying to beenz with an example of a LH thread on a kitchen blender. In the example the spanner is a thin one to hold the LH nut while the LH threaded knob is screwed on.

For stainless steel go to Anzor.  For others go to EDL.
