• 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).

notice how close the markings are to each other and how there is a good bit of the arced scale plate that has no markings? This is because these units sold by the factory have a straight leaf instead of a taped leaf. The straight one was cheaper to make. Our original style tensiometer with tapered leaf looks just like this one except it has the marking spread of over the full length of the scale. The Pitts units like the one sold here with the tight markings make it hard to know if you are at 1100, 1125, 1150, 1200, etc.
