• 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 $49.99/year or $6.99/month 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).

1/4” nails

I’m putting together yet another wood wing but my supply of the 1/4” brass plated nails is diminishing. Spruce is no longer carrying them and I’ve been unable to locate any except on EBay at $14/100. Three hundred nails to a rib makes for an expensive wing! Thanks for any suggestions.
