Just throwing this out there to see if anything hits. Biplane builder asks for help.

I need spar material. All or some. Did you buy for a project that you never completed?

Looking for a good 3 in 1 gauge.

Need a mag switch with right left both and start feature with key.

Anyone in Florida got some aluminum for front fuselage enclosure top and sides? I don't need much.

Tailwheel setup for an offer I couldn't refuse?

I thank you in advance for any help you could offer.

Yeah, oh well, thanks for trying! Maybe I could do my ailerons if they met the 7/8 x 3 1/4? Or maybe you’d rather not separate. Just curious. What were they for? Pitts I bet.

They were going on a ultimate 10-200 but the bottom spars at the route got milled incorrectly so I decided to save them for something else. They will definitely meet the 3-1/4. They are about 7/8” I believe, but I didn’t check that this evening because of them being 8ft. I’ll mic them tomorrow if you don’t mind waiting another day.

You know Dennis that’s a good question. I’m ordering the plans this weekend so I’ll check to see if there are any reasons why I couldn’t. Thank you for the idea!

I was looking into splicing the broken spars on my plane. If you go by the overlap lengths and distance from fittings specified in AC43.13, you'll find there aren't many places it's possible on a SA100.
