Does anyone know where I can get 4BA half-nuts, one size smaller?
I can get one-size-smaller, and I can get half nuts, but not both at once.

How about machining them to correct thickness on a lathe etc. Hold them on a screw locked to other nuts and just face to length.

I think you may be asking the
Have you compared the thickness of a half 5BA nut with the pitch of 4BA ?
P.S. Skimming down some full nuts to a realistic height might be the best option.
Edit: David beat me to that ^^^

Alternatively, buy 5BA and retap them 4BA.
