    While I contemplate an incredibly seized bolt on the derailleur I was planning on using, could anyone let me know if an Altus M370 rear derailleur will work with some 9 speed Tiagra drop bar shifters?

    Ahh that's all good to know, thanks @aggi and @mashton - I had assumed a better router was the best way to go. Unfortunately the flat itself is pretty restricted in terms of repositioning but I might look at a powerline adapter.

    And cheers Mashton, but I live in Edinburgh and will try to pick something up locally

    Does anyone have advice on a budget router which will be an improvement on the stock Virgin one?

    I'm starting a new role in a week and a bit and I'm short of cash until I receive the first pay cheque. We've rejigged our flat and the office is now on the opposite side of the flat from the router - speeds are 100mb in the living room and barely 10mb in the office, which isn't going to work for video calls etc

    It sounds like a more powerful router is the best first step, and it'd be useful to get some first hand advice on what might be best - cheers!

    After a week of actually using work boots for work, my redbacks are looking dusty, scuffed and dry. I'll brush the off and clean away the dirt, but what's the best way to moisturise and rejuvenate the leather?

    I'm helping my dad with some DIY as he and my mum finish off their new house - next up is some parquet floor laying. The wood is is in a variety of sizes (as supplied by the manufacturer) and he needs to lay the flooring on a landing.

    Is it wishful thinking to hope there's a tool that will factor in the various sizes of pieces we have, and which will calculate an optimal layout? If not, is there a suggested approach to laying floor in smallish spaces (roughly 2.5mx2.5m)

    I'm trying to help my dad design a new tailgate for his trailer, after his fell off while driving on the motorway (oh to be a near 70s year old pensioner...)

    There's two pieces of hardware which will need replacing - one of which I have identified as a lift off hinge. The second is the end/female/receiving bit of a latch, which looks a bit like this:

    Essentially I'll looking for something like the hook on the left - is there a specific name for this sort of thing? And does anyone know what a lift-off hinge/whatever the second thing is called, will be called in German, as it will be purchased there...
