What type of plugs are you buying? I believe Bosch plugs are pre-gapped. If you are using one of those gapping disks, then I can see why you would want something more accurate. In the past I used the type that has different thickness wire hooks to it. It sort of looks like a "Chinese star". It really doesn't take much to bend the ground electrode on a sparkplug to adjust the gap. Again though, I think Bosch plugs are pregapped. NGKs are another brand that come pregapped. I am sure there are others, but can't think of them right now.
