A tremendous site. If you take life expectancy of those times it corresponds to a building project that takes more than 600 years nowadays. Our "highly civilized" nation is not even able to build an airport (Berlin) or a train station (Stuttgart) within ten years.
Great job, Tony. A beauty of a headstock. And Gotoh is definitely number 1 for tuners.The tuners from yesterday's image have been installed on the ukulele neck. Each tuning key consists of 11 parts that must be disassembled out of the package, then reassembled on the neck in order and perfectly aligned to ensure proper function. Great care must be taken not to drop a tiny washer or bushing during the process. I breathed a sigh of relief when I was finished.

I've never owned a pickup and have driven one only rarely, but the old models from that era had a certain charm to them.Those who love old Ford trucks, believe they will run forever.
Those who don't, believe that Ford stands for 'Fix or Repair Daily'.
I don't fall into either camp, but something about old trucks - the way they were designed, with form following function - gets to me. I saw this oldie-but-goodie permanently parked alongside the road, east of Klamath Falls, Oregon.
