Hi All,

I am in the process of building a Mikado as well. I am new to alcohol firing and was just wondering about something. I am sure I will get many different answers, but I just wanted to hear your input. How exactly do you light the fire in the engine? Do you use a match, lighter, etc? It seems somewhat difficult to access the wicks on this particular engine so I was just looking for some tips.

Thanks for the help,
David

OK. I have already have a butane lighter for my butane engines so I am all set there. Fred, that us a neat trick. Use the flame to ignite the lighter. I will have to pick up a mirror though. Thanks again for the tips guys.
