Default Anyone with M4 hexagonal brass standoffs?

Hey guys. I'm working on a project that requires a few M4 hexagonal coupling or hexagonal brass standoffs. They're the exact same thing except the standard coupling is aluminum or steel, while the brass standoffs are obviously brass. The smallest I can find locally in the coupling is M6 and the brass standoffs are nowhere to be found.

The standoffs are often used with circuit boards and generally in the computer industry, so I thought someone here might have some. I'm looking specifically for open-ended standoffs with full female threading, but female-to-male standoffs might work, depending on length. I believe most of the standoffs that come with cases for motherboards are M3, but I've seen M4 used before.

I only need 2 or 3. I need them to pull rivnuts and standard nuts strip before the rivnut fully collapses. I'm hoping someone in Canada might have some laying around they could snail mail. If I have to, Chinese sellers on eBay are selling units of 20 for a few dollars shipped. However, I'd be waiting 4-6 weeks.

Anything over a standard M4 nut length but not so long it makes using a socket wrench awkward. So, probably anywhere from 0.5-2cm.

I'm not removing rivnuts. I'm installing them. The coupling nuts/standoffs are used as part of a makeshift tool to pull the rivnuts and collapse them.

Here's what I'm looking for:

I'm in Whitehorse, Yukon. I've already contacted my local suppliers. The smallest any of them have is M6.

oh says blind man,
then why not use allen cap screw with a spacer (a socket and washer) to pull it in

or

do it the caveman style knock them in by putting allen screw in bottom threaded in snug with a washer and hammer in

if hole is too tight then file a bit so it goes in smooth
