New Pig Introduces Form-A-Funnel™

Form-A-Funnel

Form-A-Funnel™ is a flexible tool that bends, molds, and holds its shape to fit virtually any application where liquids, leaks or drips need to be drained, diverted or transferred.

Tipton, PA (Vocus/PRWEB ) January 19, 2009 -- New Pig Corporation has introduced the Form-A-Funnel™ -- a flexible tool that bends, molds, and holds its shape to fit virtually any application where liquids, leaks or drips need to be drained, diverted or transferred.

Form-A-Funnel

Constructed of a moldable lead interior and fully coated with thick and pliable rubber, the versatile funnel is chemical resistant and safe to handle. The Funnel can be easily shaped to channel, catch and divert hard-to-drain liquids directly into a container, keeping drips off of equipment and floors, reducing the potential for slips and falls. Easy to clean, simply spray with any cleaner or degreaser and wipe away dirt or oil after each use. When not in use, the Form-A-Funnel™ will retain its shape until its next application, and can be flattened out or rolled up and stored in a tool box.

For more information, please view the Form-A-Funnel™ in action at www.formafunnel.com. The Form-A-Funnel™ is exclusively available through New Pig Corporation.

Cheap Trick - Spark Plug Adapter Tool

My spark plug socket failed to allow me to retrieve my old spark plug, which I wound up recovering with a magnetic retrieval tool. This was fine, but what about reinstalling my new plugs way “down thar”? Few of us have the fancy T-tool also used for spark plugs, so I came up with this cheap trick.

Using one of your old spark plug wires, cut the cord off near the head of the hex-shaped end of the probe. After gapping and lubing the spark plug threads with anti-seize compound, insert the plug in the end of the probe, and start threading the plug by hand back into the head. After tightening as much as you can by hand, use your spark plug socket to finish tightening the new plug and install your wire.

When pulling plugs, first loosen the spark plug with the socket, then use the old probe to grasp the top of the plug and remove it. The space where the spark plugs are mounted are tight enough to fish around until you feel the probe seat on the plug. Installing new plugs this way also allows you to feel the plug being threaded, and likely will minimize the chance of cross-threading a plug in the future.
