There might be another way, but if so I’m out of ideas.  The following takes the ly:stencil-scale approach, and it doesn’t help here.


  (customTimeSignature grob)
   ((fraction (ly:grob-property grob 'fraction))
    (num (car fraction))
    (denom (cdr fraction))
    (sz (ly:grob-property grob 'font-size 0.0))
    (mult (magstep sz)))
    (grob-interpret-markup grob #{
      \markup {
        \translate #'(0 . 0.03)
        % \override #'(font-name . "Times")
        \fontsize #2.5
        \override #'(baseline-skip . 2)
        \center-column {
          \line {
            #(number->string num)
          \line {
            #(number->string denom)
   mult mult)


Here's what I get with your original code and doing nothing more than setting baseline-skip to 0 (shown with staves at fontSize = -3, -2, -1, and default, respectively):

That looks like it's vertically aligned nicely to me, but if this isn't what you're after, please help us understand what you see as the ideal scenario. Thanks!
