• 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.

Just to give you some ideas on homemade tools.

I have always needed a Sandblasting Cabinet, so a few years ago I made it. I use a pressure pot blaster with it and it does a wonderful job. I do use Glass bead in this.
There is a 8" door on the bottom to dump the beads. I have a plastic tote with wheels to get access, dump that into a screened box and fill my pot.

I have less than $100 in it, not including the pressure pot. It's a 275 gallon oil tank, Safety glass window and under the light is Lexan. You need to use a vacuum cleaner or squirrel cage fan to give it a positive vent in the cabinet.
You could also make this from plywood.
