|Cleans any size plug without changing grommet. Has 2-way valve (blast or air) and comes complete with abrasive powder. Ready to use.|
I should have bought this years ago! This works so well and is so reasonably priced that any all aircraft owners should buy one. The only issue I have encountered is that the grommet that you stick the plug through can spin in the containing groove, and can push thru into the housing if you arent careful. But easily worked around and it just simply works!
Easy to use and inexpensive device. Must have for owner of the aircraft.
Best $30 spent ever! Works great!
Easy to use. Does a nice job cleaning the plugs.
Worked amazingly well - the plugs look like new
Actually I am quite impressed. I set my compressor regulator to 80psi (10 psi below max recommended), gave three short 1 - 2 second blasts with the media, then another 3 second clearing blast and the plugs came out looking very clean. I had low expectations for my carbond up and oily plugs but they came out shining with a matte aluminum color. Just be heads up that the cleaning media can get wedged between the electrode and the fingers but is very easy to get out. I thought this was going to be messy but it wasnt. 5 stars.
Works well. Cleans up the plugs just fine and even does a good job of breaking up the clinkers.
An inexpensive cleaner that works okay except that the rubber grommet that holds the spark plug is slightly undersized for a 18 mm spark plug. If you push the spark plug into the grommet very hard the grommet will pop out of position. You have to sort of screw the spark plug into the grommet.
Works very well. My only comment is that the rubber gasket that you insert the plug through is pretty thick. This blocks the cleaner from cleaning up most of the threads.
Worked as I expected, was somewhat messy with some abrasive getting out as it was being used. Still it cleaned the plugs fine. Be sure to get all abrasive cleaned away before installation!

The abrasive that our supplier uses is "Black Diamond", which is an industrial abrasive that does not break down as glass beads tend to do. It will clean without leaving any residue (glass dust) or build up on the plugs.
The abrasive goes in the cavity closest to the air inlet.
The unit will have a bag of abrasive and a nipple fitting for the air inlet.
Extra abrasive can be purchased using part number 12-00787.
It is designed as a one size fits all. Just push the sparkplug through, but it is just a rubber grommet, and can be cut if the user chooses to do so.
No. For the fine wire plugs you will need the walnut abrasive. It will need to be set up as a special order. Please request this through one of our sales team members.
Requires 40 PSI
We have added the Instructions PDF in the Documents tab on this web page.
The abrasive stays in the bag and you reuse it until it shows signs that it is no longer cleaning the plugs.
