• 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.

My elevator trim tab connectors are made up of 1/4 OD tube, with forked ends mated to the tubewith what I 'think' is silver soldering. These forked ends are on both pushrods, therefore I have no fine adjustment if I need it. I want some adjustment..what hardware/approach do I need for this?
I thought about just changing one side, by replacing the 1/4 tube with a solid 1/4" rod as per plans, then threading the end to accept anAN486 fork rod end, but this forked endlooks 'bulky'? Any other ideas? Or is the AN486 the way to go?
