    What is this?

    Another A&P/IA and myself were talking about all of the things we've found in airplanes and he said "I found this a while back but I cant figure out what it is." He showed it to me and I was also at a loss. I said "I know where to post a picture and we'll know what it is in about ten minutes"... So here ya go boys, Tell us what it is....

    Well, it looks like a "Sparkflug!"

    I have no idea, really, but Sparkflug could mean "sparkflight" in German. I guess it is some kind of spark plug wrench for a lawn mower. The gap looks too small for bigger spark plugs. The wrench also looks too small for most spark plugs, but you can't tell for sure by a picture.

    Maybe it's for setting gaps on some obscure engine.

    This one may be more versatile. Had it for probably over 50 years but don't see BA hardware in USA very often so not used much now.

    I always knew them as ignition wrenches. Some had feeler gauges and some did not.
