I made mine,by taking a old glowplug and smashing the glow part with a hammer till flat.Then I took a grinder and sharpened the edages so it looked like a sword.

Im also looking for one, but if a homemade one has done the job Im all about that.

How did you judge how wide to keep smashing the glow part. Couldnt you risk damaging the threads or the chamber if the glow plug is smashed too flat?

Any pictures?
