  1. I tend to use a hand wire brush and wash it under a tap while doing so, it comes off very easily - a stiff plastic brush would do it too.
  2. My 6kg was in a dustbin, but bigger than that, so maybe you go for 3kg to start with? I took quantities from a very good write up somewhere, it works well, even removing paint.
  3. Yep, 6kg was no problem, just keep stirring, or add before you add the water so the water stirs it And yes, you need to link electrodes out of the water, as above.
  4. If we aren't dunking our beards in brown ale every now and then and having a moan about anything modern, then we can't be land rover enthusiasts.
  5. https://www.johncraddockltd.co.uk/land-rover-discovery/discovery-1/parts/hardware-and-fixings/bh607161l-bolt-716-unf-x-2-inch.html https://www.johncraddockltd.co.uk/other/military/parts/hardware-and-fixings/ny608041l-use-ny608042.html Which leads to: https://www.johncraddockltd.co.uk/other/military/parts/hardware-and-fixings/ny608042-nylock-locking-nut-12-inch-unf.html https://www.johncraddockltd.co.uk/land-rover-discovery/discovery-1/parts/steering/bx112201-bolt-m12-x-100-various-applications.html
  6. Cool, sounds good, no glitter in the oil is a good thing!
  7. Good job, hopefully you caught it before crown wheel or pinion damaged happened!
  8. Very top level stuff here: https://www.optimabatteries.com/en-us/experience/2014/04/can-i-connect-dissimilar-batteries-parallel Essentially it can lead to under or overcharging of batteries, which is good for neither, and you can end up killing your old, or new battery in shorter order than you should, or even possibly increasing load on alternator and wearing that out sooner.
  9. Should be rigid, did you check the bearings? Wear in these are the most likely reason for play up/down/left/right.
  10. The rebar will sludge up quite quickly, better to have a bent plate(s) with larger surface area if you are trying that. I never had a battery connected as well, I just used an old dumb charger, which was great. I'd be a bit nervous of having a battery attached as well, as the chance of shorts is quite high should something shift, and.... well you can probably work out the rest I use this many in a dustbin, which is holding ~ 80l I think? https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/6-x-1kg-DRI-PACK-SODA-CRYSTALS-MULTI-PURPOSE-CLEANER-LAUNDRY-AID-WATER-SOFTENER/401613527958 Not to be confused with washing powder.... which will eat your skin quite happily, this is a little more gentle.
