• 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 $29.95/year 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).

Good morning,
Would anyone have about a 26" piece of .049 wall stream line tubing that is excess to their needs? Major axes needs to be about 1 3/4" and the minor axes about 3/4". This will be used to repair a strut on a Fleet project.
I know I can buy this new ($20/ft, must buy 3'), but readily admit am looking to minimize cost. I thought I would check here if anyone has some drop off left from their project.
Thank you in advance for any leads.
Hope all have a great weekend!
Jim C

Call Wicks, ask for Scott, tell him Dennis with the Acrosport gave you his name.
Tell him what you need and how much you want to spend.
Then come back on here and tell us how it went.
