• 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). Annual membership also comes with two BiplaneForum.com decals.

I have been buying my wood from Wicks. Mostly because I had heard that their quality was a bit better. I have been very happy so I stuck with them.

I am getting an order together for some steel to start making some fittings. And I see That Aircraft spruce is cheaper and seems to have more sizes.

I assume 4130 steel is 4130 steel from wicks or spruce. Is that correct??
