• 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).

Square tubing?

Has anyone substituted square tubing for the crossmember that the bushings for the forward horizontal stab are welded to? Can't remember the station number and the plans are several hundred miles away at the moment. My thought is that it wwould make a more straight forward weld and probably stronger.
Just trying to make my life easier.
Good idea, bad idea, suck it up and do it the hard way?
