Default Spark Plug Adapters

I was finishing up my Annual Inspection and noticed the 18mm to 14mm spark plug adapter threads were badly eroded and decided it was time for new ones.
I got sticker shock when I priced 8 bushings from Emag and Aircraft Spruce ( Big fan of both company's) about $185.00 shipped!!!
I found this company that looks to supply the identical product for $72.00 shipped.
Has anyone used these???
Well, I ordered them and will let you all know.
