• 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).

Bending the Leading Edge

Bending the Leading Edge

I bolted a hickie bender (electrical conduit bender from Home Depot) to my table and went at it. I bent the outboard bend first and made slight bends every 1-2" or so. No sand packing, no heat. Just be sure to check it 200 times against the pattern on your table and keep it level while you are bending!
