Can anyone tell me if the wings on a 108 and a 10A are interchangeable. The span is the same as are the flaps and ailerons, at lease by the book measurements, but is anyone sure???

Gene, is the chord the same? I don't know. Last time I saw a 10A they looked smaller than 108 wings. Yes, the span is the same.

Unless I'm wrong, the only difference is a Wood spar on the 10A and a metal spar on the 108. According to the books, the span is the same. I don't know about the chord but I'll bet its identical. Ailerons and flaps are the same.

According to what I can find, the MAC on the Stinson 108 is 57 inches, where the MAC on the 10A is 55.4 inches. (based on report 1075: Page 10, Equipment list from Stinson Aircraft Corp.)

Combine that with the different spar, and I think a slightly shorter wing span (less than an inch from what I found) I think that the wings will not be declared compatible.
