• 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 drawing out the Upper Front Spar Plate, Upper Rear Spar Plate and Lower Front Spar Plate Fittings. (Page 14 Revised Dated 3-90)

The drawing shows the large center hole onthe Upper and LowerFront Spar Plates as7/8". The center hole for the Upper Rear as 5/16".

What are the sizes of the other four holes on all three plates ? 1/4" ?
And what thickness is the material ? .125 (4130) ? as it shows for the old style fitttings on page 6 ?

Good or bad assumption ?

Oh... and another thing. What are the hole locations for the 7/8" holes for the Upper and Lower Front Spar Plates ? It just has Sta 76 and Sta 97 3/4.
