• 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).

Rib jig

Rib jig

It's not real clear but here is a shot of the jig showing the end of it. I used a piece of 3/4" plywood for the top and cut two additional pieces of 3/4" to use as full length legs. If you look at the end you can see the "U" shape of the piece. This kept the top surface from bowing. All my ribs are straight as arrows.
