• 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 going to buy a band saw this weekend. I see posts that say that aluminum is workable with a wood band saw. How abotut steel? Would it be better to buy a metal band saw and use it to cut the metals as well as wood? The horizontal/vertical ones look somewhat affordable compared to vertical metal band saws.
Otherwise, is there another way to cut the 4130 fittings?
