• 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'm about ready to buy the tubing to bend up the vertical stabilizer for my Skybolt.
What did you use to bend the tube ? And, did it work for you or would you have done it a dfferent way if you had to do it again?

Also, what should I look out for when making that BIG round bend ?

I've read the books written by Tony B, just looking for additional info.

Thanks in advance for any input.
