Here are mine:

MERGER
POSTER
x error. After time (9+9)*25+10+7-2=465
RATIONS
CLASS
4*(25+100+10)=540 (1 off)
SANDAL
10*(100+10-75)-(8-1)=343
x PATHETICS is all I could come up with in time

Thanks for solutions to 3 and 8. Congrats on the full monty!

That was a nice after time solution to the 465, Mike -- much simpler than what I found. And well done on solving the 343, which I thought was harder than it might seem at first glance.

No EMERGER in the Macquarie, Victor, so you did well to avoid it. Good work with the full monty, and nice navigation in the numbers.

Louise: PASTICHE was a lovely spot! Just a shame it wasn't the answer.

4. ARSONIST
5. CALLOUS
6. 539 = (100 - 25 + 8/4)*(4+3)
7. x SAWBLADE
8. 343 = 10*(100 - 75 + 10) - 8 + 1
9. x PATHETICS, but did get PATCHIEST before too long, perhaps 15s.
