    Hello everyone!

    The spark plug store is officially open. A few years ago I purchased all of Dale Detrich's stock and parts to make his side fire plugs. I have also made 3 of my own design with the standard ground strap design. I have in stock . .

    6-56
    8-40
    10-40
    1/4-32

    If interested you can contact me by phone but email is better because I still work 70 hrs a week. To see what I have to offer you can go to www.miniaturesparkplugs.com. To order contact me at stevehuckss396@gmail.com or call but you might catch me at work.

    With NAMES coming up I can't officially sell plugs at the show but if you want to save a few on shipping you can purchase and then pick them up from me there. Just look for the giant sparkplug.

    Thank you.

    Those sure are nice. If I can successfully get through my glow engine build I hope to graduate to a spark one day!

    Just want to let everyone know that I have had a few reports about the threads on my plugs being a little tight. I check every base with a go-no go gage set to be sure they are correctly sized. The trouble might be from cheap taps. If you run into that trouble try buying a good quality tap made in the USA, Poland, Japan, or Germany. As they can be expensive and may only be used a few times, or you already purchased the cheaper tap, try bumping up the tap drill one size and see if that eases the fit.

    I have found some good taps in 6-56 (Japan) and 1/4-32 (USA). They are available on the website. I have my eyes pealed for 8 and 10 - 40. If I can find them for a reasonable price I will get them up also.

    No issues here with #10-40 plugs, Steve. I think the taps I have were made by Widia. I forget whether I got them from Travers, MSC, or McMaster. Just for giggles, I will put the thread mic to the latest ones I bought.

    I received 8 each #10-40 plugs from Steve yesterday and measured them with my thread mic. They all came in below nominal max pitch diameter and were mostly at the top end of 2A tolerances.
