• The Biplane Forum is a large global active community of biplane builders, owners and pilots. From Pitts to Skybolts, to older barnstormers, all types are welcome. In addition to our active community, our content boasts exhaustive technical information which is often sought after for projects and maintenance. This information has accumulated over the 12+ years the forum has been in existence.

    The Biplane Forum is a private community. Subscriptions are only $29.95/year to gain access to this great community and unmatched source of information not found anywhere else on the web. We are also a great resource for non biplane users, since many GA aircraft are built the same way (fabric and tube construction).

45 degree cuts

45 degree cuts

I needed to make sure that the 45 degree cuts, for the brake pedal tubes were all at a 90 degree angle to a flat surface. Here is a picture of a piece of tubing in my chop saw. I used a piece of an "L" extrusion and place the one end on the surface of the chop saw and, after positioning the tube for the cut, moved the extrusion next to the tip of the 45 degree cut that was already on the one end of the tube and made sure that it was flat against the upright part of the extrusion. (pretty wordy, eh)
