    Water smartweed / amphibious bistort control

    I have a plague of it and I can't seem to find a suitable herbicide. Cutting it does knock it back a bit but won't kill it. I think it's in the knotweed family

    Boosting WiFi signal via electric cables around the house?

    I'd safely say so. I live in a very remote area where the electrical infrastructure is fairly primative. I know of power surges in my area which have damaged cordless phones, set top boxes etc but I have had the homeplugs for a few years no hassle.

    Boosting WiFi signal via electric cables around the house?

    I use a set of TP link network powerline adapters / homeplugs. Fantastic gadgets. Plug one in beside router /modem, plug 2nd one (WiFi unit) into any plug socket coming from the same breakers / trip switches. Gives me WiFi in the sheds, garden etc. They work better if plugged straight into...

    Loosening seized bolts

    I gave it to a local welder / wizard who does bits for me now and again. He got the bolts moving and tightened them up. I know an airgun was involved. Then he welded the lot together.

    Massey 165 diff lock

    Some time ago I tried to free the seized diff pedal on my square axle 165 and ended up breaking the support / bracket that the diff pedal is connected to. (Brute force and ignorance) My plan is to buy a new bracket / support and steep the pedal in diesel to free it before attaching it to the new...
