    Re- lining brake shoes with adapted tool

    Job made easy with adapted eyelet riveting tool, no need for extra pair of hands to hold shoe whilst riveting with punches

    I replaced the tip on the tool with a cut and ground down riveting punch , it worked a treat

    Brings back memories when i used to work on milk floats, that was a regular job.
    If quitters never win, and winners never cheat, then who is the fool who said "Quit while you're ahead"

    That's a very neat tool. It would have been useful the only time I ever attempted to reline brake shoes myself. At the age of 18 on a Messerschmitt KR200 and I b***ered up the linings completely and had to go off and get them done professionally.

    Yes the first time I did it years ago I broke a lining , had 1 punch in the vice whilst trying to hold the shoe and punch the rivet / this tool makes it so easy but still got to be careful not to do rivet too tight especially on the end of lining they crack easy

    Takes me back as well to when I first started (50 years in the trade this year) we had a tool with different size mandrels that fitted in vice and just used small ball peen hammer to rivet over . We used to skim coms on dynamos , rebrush , and rebush them as well!!!

    That's the difference between a mechanic and a fitter of today, I too am of the age where just about everything was repaired not thrown away and replaced
    I actually get pleasure out of getting something working again
