• 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).

Well, I've finally graduated practicing on scrap metal and put the flame to an actual piece. Well, actually it's a practice run on the rudder pedals.

I didn't weld it in it's jig... so it's not dead on.

I'm actually pretty happy with the welds on it. I see where I didn't weld through all the way into the next weld on the one piece. Something I'd correct on the actual piece.

Next I'll upload pictures of the finished rudder pedals.

Yes, you too can learn to weld.
