I used John Pike at Big Sky Stearman to make the left aft spar for my Ryan. He has a copy of the factory drawings for the spars. Big Sky can make them using Douglas Fir or Spruce. John’s number is 503-631-3206.
I would NOT recommend using the person that has advertised on this site to make STA bulkheads or spars. PM me for details if necessary.

Guys, who Ron may be referring to is Michael Sasich. He has taken deposits from a number of Ryan folks for wing spars and STA bulkheads and to my knowledge has not produced any other than the one #2 bulkhead he sent to me, a year later. This part was completely UN-airworthy with childlike welding and crooked pick-up points. He still owes me wing spars. Now I paid him in full and up front to secure an early production part but after months of emails and phone calls this POS part came. If this is the best he can do then it's my advise and stay as far away as you can.....
