• 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.

I have a piece of 4130 tubing, 11 inches long. The wall thickness is .188
and the inside diameter is .374

I want to increase the ID to .380, any ideas? I don't think that I could
chuck up accurately enough to remove .006 over the 11 in length with
a boring bar.

Adjustable reamer or cylinder hone?
