I'm very much inclined to agree with you Oliver. £8.825 is the calculated figure on the £353 price shown.

Sat at computers as we are, I am gob smacked that there were a couple of very bad guesses out there that have amused me slightly. I can now see why we're bee keeping and not building rockets though! :toetap05:

Good job the VAT man isn't coming, to check your books guys. Too much alcohol still in the systems? :) :cheers2:

Oops! :blush5:, I agree, I looked at the net price and incorrectly set that as the vat inclusive price. I just wish I had alcohol as an excuse.

Now where did I leave that rocket fuel?.....it,s dark in here.......ah! a match.....:Angel_anim::Angel_anim:

And who says we don't?

I have considered it in the past, but after some thought I decided not to pursue it as a hobby! Just a bit too specialised and I hate destroying one's good kit, just as an experiment. I might join a group to see how far things have progressed in the hobby - thanks for the reminder.

BTW, one can see why the oxalic acid tricklers need the ready-made solutions and an automatic dispenser.

Regards, RAB

Unfortunaly my profession is probably the closest of most on hear to Rocket Engineer!!!

Well I had an 1 and an 8, that is close enough!

Dam Microsoft calculator. Just done it again and it gave me the answer of £8.825

I clearly remember doing Vat of 15% =£52.95 and 17.5 = £61.76 (both on £353) then some how I got to £1.81?????

Oh and Oliver, yes I do weigh my oxalic to 6 decimal places on the lab balances at work, and use a gravimetric pipette and deionised water for my trickle rather than buy it ready made.

As noted before, a couple of degrees (in science subjects) and a few Charterships to boot, but Dyslexia takes over quite a bit!

(but my VAT books are always perfect!!!! :boxing_smiley:)

Is there ANYTHING you have not done, are not an ex-spert in or know all about it?

We can name a few groups your might want to join as well!

Just a wee reminder that this is the season of good will.....................

I am SO tempted to post some scathing and highly accurate remarks about personalities but as above..............................................................

So lets all be friendly as it all works so much better that way.
