Cylinder boring places

Post by catuk on Sun Dec 23, 2012 8:38 pm


Hi all, I got a few XR cylinders/barrells I want bored out, they are all on standard bore so I know there's scope for the next size up.

Anyone recommend where to go, I'm in Cwmbran and the average price to expect to pay.

Not yet Skip, besides the passing on of our Amber, not 7 weeks had gone before the company I was working for decided I wasn't entitled to paid holidays I'd asked about, until I'd worked for them for a year (strike number 1 ref ACAS), I knew then and had it confirmed via ACAS that they were in breach of employment law. The fuck shit owner of the company then decided I wasn't fit for work and told me to stay home for a week or two without pay (strike number 2 ref ACAS). I'd had 3 weeks off and been back in work for 3 weeks after Amber's death and I "was" fit for duty.

I started an official grievance with the company and they basically ignored my letters/emails.

I didn't qualify for legal aid so I employed a private solicitor £2000+vat who specialised in Employment law and after reviewing the evidence he instructed me to resign with immediate effect, that was on the 6th November.

So at the moment I'm working back down Newport docks for an Agency part time and wait to see what happens with the employment tribunal.

Family wise, Amber's younger sister Courtney is still living with my wife's sister's family up the road. You see, on that fateful day in September, Courtney who shared the bedroom with Amber all her life in bunk beds woke up that morning to see her sister dead on the bedroom floor.

Christmas is a non starter this year, nothing.

I had a problem with an ex employer (more of an industrial injury type thing) and the solicitor found my house contents insurance policy had 50 grand's worth of legal cover included - which we used

This was news to me, but apparently is on most policies so maybe worth a look at yours??
