I have one. It's a mini glass bead machine and it works great. Just clean the plugs with the media and then give them a shot of air to blow off any nasties.

I got Ivan one for Christmas several years back and he loves it. I did not get for $10.00 though, I do not remember for what. I know it has been worth it though!!!

Its one of the most used tools in my shop. When tuning you can't put new plugs in every time you want to read them. But pop them in this little gizmo and they come out just like brand new. Takes about 15 sec a plug...

As a old timer I can tell you all the shops had a plug cleaner, they would clean the plugs in place of channging to new ones.

Is it really worth it? I mean if you are doing a lot of tuning and the plugs get fouled out, sure. For the most part, why not just dump them and get fresh plugs?

:agree:

True, but was thinking more on the lines of for the lawnmower, snow blower, chainsaw---clean the plugs every season
