• 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).

Forward Gear Fitting

Forward Gear Fitting

Fitting with both "ears" bent using the forming/bending block. Fitting was drilled with under-sized holes. One in the center hole on the forward section and one in the back portion of the fitting (a section that will be cut out when attaching to the fuselage.) I used these hole to attach the fitting to the block to keep it from moving. Holes in "ears" were drilled after taking fitting off of block.

It's amazing how following bend allowance and set-back charts make a beautiful fitting without having to shape the fitting after the bending process.
