• 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'm looking for a fastener to be used on the floor/heel tray mounting tabs.

I'm looking at anchor nuts... I'm assuming that an anchor nut with an elastic insert would be the way to go... not just a metal anchor nut. Looking at these online... they'repretty expensive.

Reading through the Skybolt Newletters I see where Mac suggests using Tinnerman nuts. Looks like a great idea. Cheap and easy to install.

1. Any opinions about Tinnerman nuts ?
2. Any sources out there forreasonably priced anchor nuts ?
3. Would standard metal anchor nuts be ok to use ?
