• 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).

Tail ribs and wood forms

Tail ribs and wood forms

The sheet metal brake will only do part of the job bending up the tail ribs. We made a series of tapered wedges with radius bottoms and a 35 degree chamfer at the top to finish the job. There are also straight hardwood forms for the horizontal stabilizer ribs. This method has proven to work reasonably well.
