Past a Plug,bought and stripped it ,cut the Porcelain, made an adapter between the PLug and the kit. Used a short piece of Honduran Rosewood with Sapwood between.

As A Sparky apprentice 2nd year in 1952 I was seconded for three months to a sister firm of Auto Mechanics,learned a healthy respect for Spark Plugs,tough little items. Whenever times were tough and they were after I married as a 4th yr Apprentice I worked three jobs...1, My trade
2. Cleaner for 4hrs then 3. Pulled Petrol at Ampol until 2am in the morning. I remembered these Spark Plugs largely unseen but capable of hard work.

WE built a house the first year as well,lived in a 10 foot square shed on the block for a year. Now with my wife of 63 yrs we number 75 persons,no regrets,plenty of happiness.

Spent last night figuring how to combine the Plug and a Pen,here it is.

Nice. Brings back memories of a Champion factory just west of Cambridge, Ohio on US 40.
