• 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.

Started learning how to TIG weld, thinking it is the best weld process to use on an airframe. However, I've read that the TIG weldment is very brittle and will crack almost immediately if not normalized. I'm wondering how many people are using TIG welding for their frames and what are the thoughts on using TIG versus Oxy Fuel.
