    Is this good enough for a spark plug cleaner?

    Would this be appropriate to use to clean my massive electrode plugs using the appropriate spark plug cleaning media?

    I don't see why it wouldn't. It'll make a mess but looks like it'd do the job.

    when cleaning plugs, just do it for a couple of seconds and look, to much is bad. they work good. theres a little lever on them so you can either blast or blow air to clean, figure out how that works.

    back to your 1st thinking a sparkplug cleaner isnt good for much else that ive found. but airplane wise a couple of 20 dollar bills is no big shake. buy both.

    If you don't mind getting peppered in the face with media. I use one of these to spot blast parts and it shot sand everywhere.

    The electrode end goes into the blaster with the barrel sticking out.

    This is the type I have been using for decades. I think I picked it up at a yard sale for a dollar. Any discount tool store usually has them such as HF. I also have a sand blasting cabinet that I have cleaned the entire plug when then seem to get a very slight dusting of rust. Touch up with silver high temp paint.
