• 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.

Need a little help.
I'm ready to make an order at Aircraft Spruce, mostly for wood. I don't want anything pre-cut. I want to do the work. When looking at the website under "spruce kits", they list the items in the wood kits and it appears that it is all pre-cut.

example: capstrip-1/4x1/4 - qty in kit, 600 - qty to order, 600.

However, the catalog description of the kits says that the builder has to rip the boards to dimension as needed. Am I missing something here?

I just want the 1/4" thick boards to rip. Same with the rest of the wood.
