• 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).

Nose Rib Jig

Nose Rib Jig

You can see in the picture where I have glued a copy of the rib to the surface of my "jig". I have used brads to keep the piece aligned. Some builders use blocks to keep the capstrips aligned. Took the advice of Tony B and built a jig that served it's purpose without being overbuilt. I asked myself am I building a plane or jigs ?
