• 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.

Guys, I've got some pictures of a brand new Toot project which is getting underway in my garage.
The first picture is the wing brackets which are cut from 0.125" chrome-moly steel. Note the full size templates which were laminated to cardboard from a shoe box.

Cutting and shaping the steel was slow, hard work, especially in 100 degree weather out here in California! The holes will be drilled later during assembly.
