• 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.

For those of you who haven't bought tubing yet I wanted to give you a general feel of what the price difference between Dillsburg and ACS is.
I bought 24 feet of of 7/8 x .058 tubing from ACS. Cost with shipping a little over $100.00

I bought the following from Dillsburg:
19' of 1 1/4" x .065
18' 4" of 1" x .049
72' of 7/8" x .049
19' of 7/8" x .035
36' 8" of 3/4" x .035
18' 4" of 5/8" x .035

Total cost including $50.89 shipping was $404.29
Unbelievable !

183 feet of tubing for $353.00 from Dillsburg as compared to 24 feet of tubing from ACS for $90.00.Edited by: Jerry
