• 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).

I was messing around with my jointer making some practice spars and found that when I had planed it down to size it was 1/16 shorter at one end over a 4' length. Because of the bevel there is no way to turn it after each pass. Any advice on technique? The jointer is a 6" rigid set up as best I can according to instructions. I want to make sure I have my technique nailed down before I tackle a real spar.
