Mirror a threading tool path creates a left hand thread

We are making a part on a 5 axis, that has a female pipe thread on both sides. We mirrored the tool paths from one side to the other. I got the entire assembly together and went to put in a pipe plug to pressure test, and the one side has left hand pipe threads.  Took me a minute to figure out why one side went in and the other just wouldn't start.

Mirror did what you asked for, 

Rectangle Pattern will do what you need.

 

Might help....

Linear\ rectangle pattern wouldn't work, but Circular Pattern did it. Still seems dumb to exactly mirror a thread tool path

What will a guy wanting / needing a left-handed thread (there) be thinking about now? 

How come it's right-handed?
