It is very difficult to visualise a spears and jackson number 5 - with brass handle. How about posting some pics I am a bit of a fan of the pope square mouth with the long wooden handle (not the fibreglasss handle though they are a bit too common a bit like the silver pill)

I just built nice cabinet for my shovel collection.
Spears and Jackson No5, very rare that one. Don't think you will find many about. Maybe at the shovel museum here.

plug gaps cracks me up-------

Aye, well, thing about plug gaps, they would be easier to store than vintage cars or 1970s disco balls and other more bulky collectables, even shovels. Just imagine how many cabinets it would take to display 32,000 shovels. Oooh, that would take some doing that would. Lot to be said for spark plug gap collecting as a hobby when you think about it...
