TdH bill being considerably lower than previous years. 20 - 25 % that of last year and, as I understand it, reducing to zero the year after.

Yes, a nice surprise even though I knew it was happening, down to 20% of what I was paying and that was down 40% after a prolonged campaign against being stitched up by them, next year will be zero.

I even got a €138 remboursement because my monthly payments had exceeded the final bill.

Andy Murray winning his first tournament for over 2 years giving the Scots something to cheer about :D
Does that not mean he becomes British again?

A smug feeling of autarky the first time you use your own isn't it Hal :good:

Its a hugely powerfull tool that needs using with respect and care to protect the workpiece and to do the job right, not something I will ever be happy to entrust to others again.
