    Having to make hundreds of sparkplug parts at a time I made a gang tool for the CNC lathe. It will spot drill, drill, bore a step with boring bar, and then clean out the drill hole and square up the bottom all in one press of a button. Major time saver as it does the entire job in about one minute.

    Slick use of a small lathe. I'm wondering what you are using for CNC control?
