My weedwacker does not spin

Not much info in the question. You may have organic matter wrapped tightly between the spool housing and the shaft. To fix, removed the spool housing to acess the weed stems, grass or other stuff that could be tightly wrapped up in the shaft. If yours has the gear housing you should remove it and clean it inside as well. It will have stuff wrapped in the lower bearing so tight you may have to replace the bearing. Use wheel bearing grease when re packing gears.

I just went to start up my older model McLane gas edger. Started up without a problem until the spark plug suddenly flew out. I assume I must need a new spark plug but is there more?

i would check the thread where your plug screws in it can be fixed with what they call a helicoil thread repair kit hope this helps.
