• 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.

Hammers for working aluminum sheet

Well, it looks like I need to shape some aluminum sheets as part of my build. I have already found the dollies I need to get the shapes I want, but now I have to purchase some hammers for both forming and planishing the pieces.

There are so many different shapes, sizes and material choicesin hammers to choose from that I don't know where to start.

Anyone havesome recommendations?

Thanks In Advance,
