• 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.

Im getting ready to build the pushrods for elevator controls. I would like to put the treaded inserts (AN490ht...) into both ends of the push rod tubes and then use female rod ends with jam nuts on both ends. My thinking is easier to build, more adjustable except that I can find left hand threaded inserts anywhere (to make it like a tie rod). Is there any reason why I should not do it this way (other than weight)???
