• 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.

Hey Guys, seeking some advice on the best welding method. From my understanding TIG appears to be the most commonly used method of welding 4130 Tube steel, however I have been reading the EAA book on Aircraft welding and it only refers to Oxy.

Any comments on preferences or tips that may be of use to me. I've used Oxy before but TIG is new to me.
