If you have a need to keep many spark plugs clean and sparkly, then this is the tool you need. Works fantastic and quickly in refurbishing spark plugs back to new condition. Caution: Always spray plug electrode area with air nozzle to make sure that all grit is removed before reinstalling spark plug. Well worth the money.

Spark plug cleaner
Great product for the home equipment maintenance shop. Great for mower, tiller, motorcycle, etc. spark plug cleaning. I am glad I bought it, and hope it will serve my needs well into the future.

Spark plug Cleaner
This is an excellant product. I have an older IH tractor that fouls plugs in a short number of hours. I can clean a set of plugs several times to almost new condition. This product will pay for itself in a short period of time.

Handy to have
I purchased tis product because of an engine with a cylinder that repeatedly fouls out the plug (bad valve guide seal/oil ring). The reason for the 3 star rating is the fact it is extremely hard to get under the electrode curve because of the straight on blasting angle. Seems ti would do better if it was angled towards the side and rotate the plug to get it. All in all it is a handy and good product for the money. It has saved me the price of quite a few plugs. Better instructions would be nice, but it doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure out.

good little plug cleaner
This is a good little plug cleaner at a reasonable price. Simple and fairly easy to use. Could use some instructions, but not hard to figure out. Air valve leaks some, so can't leave hooked up constantly or you drain your compressor.

A "must have" item
If you spend a lot of time working on old cars and motorcycles, this handy item is definately a "must have". Compact and well made, it mounts easily on the wall or bench. An excellent value, it compares with units offered by big name tool dealers at more than twice the price.

Not a bad spark plug cleaner
The Norther Industrial Spark Plug Cleaner is not a bad little plug cleaner. I have used other spark plug cleaners that cost quite a bit more money and this performed just as well. The unit does not come with instructions but it is not hard to figure out how to use it, even with the coarse sand. I had a fouled plug on a tractor and used this unit to clean it and before long the tractor was hitting on all cylinders again.

The Northern Industrial Spark Plug Cleaner — 4.2 CFM, 90 PSI seemed to work as expected. I can't stress enough though that " THE TOOL NEEDS SOME BASIC INSTRUCTIONS". I am fairly handy with things and I did figure it out. I am cleaning plugs that go into sno machines "thats what we call them up here" and I have concerns about the different medians and their possible effects on my cylinder walls. The median seemed to pack in around the center area of plug and I had to pick, dig, scrape, etc it all out. No info provided with the median. Also your web site did not mention that the tool comes with median. I ended up purchasing some seperately from another on line service.

Great tool. Also recommend the Northern Industrial abrasive media as a companion to the spark plug cleaner. No more fouled plugs!
