• 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 $29.95/year 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 have used these people to buy things for my shop, great resource. I dont know why they would not sell to an individual they have no min. order. I alway get stuff within 1-2 days. Recently I could not find anyone who had a piece of Phenol (in a small chunk) to make my torque tube bushings as per Scottlys post. These guys had all different kinds, just what I was looking for. Very easy to open account online, look up stuff and order, pay by credit card and just like that UPS shows up. Whoda thunk ???

I was just checking. I thought I read in the forum a post by someone saying that you had to have a corporate account.


Thanks for clearing that up.

I wrote that Grainger makes you have a corporate account.
