• 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).

The 7/8ths inch tubing wanted to lift off of the table while I was bending it. Being the resourceful guy that I am I took two pieces of 7/8th inch tubing, spanned it with the straightest thing I had in my shop (a 4 foot level), took two pieces of plywood and screwed them down over top of the level to hold it down. As you can see, I slid the tubing I was working on underneath of the jig I made. No lifting, problem solved. Not pretty... but I'm not here to make nice looking jigs.
