• 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).

Cuttin' Holes in the Bungee Truss

Cuttin' Holes in the Bungee Truss

After tacking both sides of the truss I re-inserted it into the jig. Laying a scrap piece of wood on the drill press table I then turn the jig, with the truss in it, upside down, clamp it to the table and then drill the holes.

Make sure the jig is square to the hole saw.
Make sure you use cutting fluid.
Cut reeeeeeeal slow. My lowest setting is something like 318 rpm.
