Vintage spark plug - USB memory stick /jump drive

One of my passions is old motor cycles & amongst other kelterment I have a small collection of early sparking plugs. These are my attempts at reproducing such plugs and giving them an up-to-date use. The photographs show three slightly different versions of an oak plug with a USB jump drive / flash drive / memory key / memory stick / memory pen or whatever else they might be called.

Oh yes they work Andy, even after being dismantled with a craft knife, glued into a chunk of wood and spun on the lathe at great speed. Here are some more similar efforts.

Isn’t there a handy ‘rule of thumb’ for setting the gap?

I’ll add ‘thumb drive’ to the list; hadn’t come across that one here in back-of-beyond Yorkshire!
