Slab & Box

mikro-orange
More on the Mikro:

The Grover tuners arrived a day early, courtesy of Amazon. The exact designation for them is 406c-6 in-line Mini Rotomatic, locking tuners. They are a drop-in replacement on the Mikro; they install with ease.

The improvement was instantaneous, with the guitar now able to hold tune at standard pitch. The 18:1 gear ratio is pure pleasure.

However, no good deed goes unpunished, so of course the low E string ( .052 inches) barely fit through the peg hole and required a minor amount of drilling and fiddling before it would thread thru the peg. Then the locking mechanism bit thru the 4th string entirely, and left it too short to use. I had to crack open a second set (I hate to do that!). Maybe it was just part of the ‘getting familiar’ part of our relationship; at any rate, the tuners are behaving very nicely…

As anticipated some weeks ago, I’ve dismantled the old layout a made a new one. I’ll show more about it in the next days. This post is a little preview of the are where all the trains are when not running on the layout; I’v enot yet placed the ballast here because I need to finish to make the prellbocks. Also wanted to show some of the loks I’ve collected. 🙂

You can see (starting from the most far):

BR 232 Ludmilla (DB), BR 152 Cargo (DB), Re 432 Cargo (SBB), Re 1012 (OBB), BR 218 (DB), Re 460 2000 (SBB), E444R XMPR (FS), E444 (FS), BR120 (DB)
