• 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).

Axles Jigged

Axles Jigged

After the front and rear gear brackets are aligned and tack welded to the fuselage, set up the 2 axle jigs with the 2 axles and a length of 1.25" tubing. Be sure to draw a line on the floor and use plumb bobs to carefully align the axles. Use electrical tape to mark the location of the gear legs on the axles and the location of the axles on the cross tube. Drop a plumb bob from the center of the cross tube to the center line on the floor.
