    Advice sought about possible tribunal

    As for what Lons said, that may well be a factor, speaking to someone at the Agency yesterday they said that the Agency could have broken tax laws by not auditing the process sooner and checking that the loan had been used as intended. Certainly if they had come to me six weeks after the loan...

    Advice sought about possible tribunal

    Nope, it started coming out of my salery in twelve equal installments the month after I received it. By the time they asked about it the majority of it had already been paid back, they asked for the balance and I paid it back immediately.

    Advice sought about possible tribunal

    I am wondering if I have a case to bring against our HR department for harassment.

    Next project: Window Seat/Ottoman - any thoughts?

    Hi folks, As it looks like I might eventually get my workshop emptied of other people's junk (mutter mutter long story) and finally be in a position to be able to do some work in it, my wife has requested a window-seat or ottoman (padded seat with concealed storage, at any rate) for her study...

    A battery drilll is a drill powered by a battery. A drill driver is a drill typically sporting a variable clutch/torque control allowing you to drive screws without stripping out. An impact driver works like a conventional drill (constant rotational force) until it reaches a certain amount of...

    Time to stir up the metallurgy pot once more...

    In all seriousness, I look forward to hearing what you think of it, Rob - it sounds impressive.
