Make something cool with all your rusty spark Plugs in your Garage...It´s time to change the spark plugs of your car....?
First of all doing this ible one spark just explode on my face...and break my grind mask so PLEASE...BE CAREFULL...some cheap spark plugs explode when its overheated...not all of them just one ...fortunately I was wearing my welding mask. But anyway not everything is perfect :No pain no gain.
I´ve made about 150 of this Biplanes and just one time was a little dangerous so don´t be afraid just wear safety equipment.
BTW ...some of you guys will ask: Hey and what about the Guns...? welll I don´t like war neither Gun machines ( Only Knifes, Blades, Axes...etc....I love them all) so I like to think that these planes will drop Sunflowers, candies, Burguers....or whatehver u want or maybe just a message to all of you guys: Have a nice Day and keep on Ibling...

I got to be Honest...I pick up everything that cross on my Way...If I see something interesting in the Highway I Hit the brake and Pick up all those stuff and Old Spark Plugs are everywhere...so as you can imagine my garage is full of those stuff.
Once you get your Spark Plugs you have to clean so well, and wrap it around with some Kind of electrical Tape.

Very cool idea :)
i think its a spring compressor
I saw some of these at Cinco de Mayo fair & loved them. I came on here to get instructions & saw there's noway possible for me to do it...Are you really willing to trade keychains for these? The ones I saw had copper wings and varied in colors. I'm wanting to hang several of them down my hallway on various lengths of fishing line. Any info you could give me would be greatly appreciated! Thank you!!

I tell you what... I really want to share my biplanes with the world!!! There are some iblers that ask me for those . I was wondering if I could sell them in the instructables store...I'm going to ask...I have more than 3000 keychains!! I love it so much...but one of the main reasons that keep me in instructables is to win one leatherman juice with my name on it !!! and I couldn't until now...I like trading with friends...so if you really want that my biplanes cross the oceans to your home...give me your address tell me what do you want to trade...and thats all.
Thnks for your kind comments...
I WANT ONE SO BAD! But I suck at this kind of stuff

Very interesting. I have always discarded my old spark plugs. I do not have any stamped pieces like you used for the tail and wings, but could make something.

133 ibles...? woww ...greetings master...would you p`loease vote for my project on the usb contest...?thnx
Master? That is funny, but thank you. I am a much older guy now and have been foolishly spending my hard earned money on tools for a long time. I have also generally had more time than money. I am thankful to have learned a few things over the years. It is fun to share them. I hope others can benefit from at least a few of them. I believe I already did vote for your project.
