Default Here's an Interesting Tool

I've been gapping plugs for 50 years by using that prongy thing that comes on the end of a little spark plug feeler gauge. Little did I know that I could piss away $109 on a tool that will do it for me. I gotta admit, it's a beautiful tool -- and the listing says it's the last one in stock.

Ohhh - a shiny, new tool. Must resist urge to add one to my already over-stuffed tool chests.

Pretty tool, but I would expect it to OPEN or close the gap for that price.
I would rather gap my way, and also measure the plug resistance with an ohmmeter before installation. I have seen a few new spark plugs O/C out of the box.
Nothing worse than chasing a misfire after new spark plug installation.

Then you want the Deluxe version. That's an extra C-note.

Looks to me like a little vise that compresses the electrode from the end. But I was taught that wasn't the way to gap a plug, you should bend it from the side so the gap remained parallel. And you still have to insert a feeler gauge? I'd think for that kind of money you should be able to punch in your desired gap and the tool would gap itself.

"I stiffened my thumb and applied circular motion on her sugar plum" Frank had a range of music from the hilarious to very complex orchestral pieces. Miss that talent.
