    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...

    If your 'up North' or in Scotland watch for leatherjackets

    I give my land a fast roll with an empty land roller in October. It helps control the leather jackets as it seals off their air tunnels. I still have some dursban but don't need it atm

    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...

    Identify the weed

    2,4D? RBH? I'm sorry I don't know what those are 😳 The area in question is wet for a few months of the year. The field was sprayed with Mortone a few years back for rushes, it put this unknown weed back but didn't seem to kill it.

    Massey weights

    I've came across these weights recently through the classifieds, they all fit and will do the job rightly. I'm intrigued as to which Tractors they might have originally been for.

    Loosening seized bolts

    How will a grinder help? I can cut the heads off the bolts or slice in between the two parts. Neither will loosen the seized threads inside.
