• 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.

Just an updade......starting on my 5th upper rib......I know Im being slow..... I am using the jigs from steen......and man.....the ribs are hard to get out........has anybody else used the steen rib kit along with the jigs from them? I have used some of y'alls techniques to pry the ribs out and that is working....I was just wondering if it is normal for me to have to break the ribs free from the jig?
