• 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).

We are very big on making jigs to replicate parts with precision. By making our jigs as precise as possible, all parts made from those jigs will have the same precision. We made four jigs to make the nose ribs. Rectangular plywood pieces were first rough cut with a scroll saw. Then the interior lightening hole was trimmed flush with a laminate trimmer. Next the outside was rough cut with the scroll saw and then dropped into the two jigs mounted to the plywood for the final outside trimming.
