• 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 know we just had a post about using t-88.

But after buildiong my first rib last night i have to say wow it is very thick glue.

My shop is 65 degrees and I even warmed the t-88 in the microwave. It started thickening in about 10 min. By the time i finished the rib I was just pushing it around with the brush.

I am thinking maybe I over warmed it reducing the pot life more than I should have.

Any other ideas. I was thinking of trying the water bath. maybe will be easier to control the temp.
