FORMED
GRATER
7*(50+3+1)+100=478 (2 off)and after time (3*(100+50+7+1)+6=480
TRIED
BUSIEST
(8+10)*50+4*7=928 (2 off)and only marginally better after time (7*(75+50+8)-4=927 (1 off)
SCORERS
4*25+7+1=108
WEIGHTILY (45s)

I like that after-time solution for 480, Mike -- well done!

Louise: Good news about DILUTER, the Macquarie does list it.
