I have just purchased a set of brake linings for the Trax, they do come with rivets but is there a special tool to attach the rivets firmly and does anyone know where one can buy a lining adhesive?

Hi Greeney

You need one of these;


I'm pretty sure to bonded shoes are fitted under pressure, not just glued.
I have had this one for years, they are still made you can get them from aviation stores http://www.aircraftspruce.com/catalog/topages/RapcoBrake.php
Cheers Dave

Hi
I remember my father rivetting shoes using a suitably sized stub, for the flat end, mounted in the vice and then 2 punches for the small end, a broad centre punch to start spreading them and then a flat punch to finish them.
An eyelet style punch would have possibly done both operations at the same time.

My father also riveted his own shoes for his Albion 6x2 twin steer and Seddon 6x4.

I'm sure I still have some of his rivets in my garage Shocked

That was helpful thanks
I got email back, they want 70$ for item and postage to France, I will look around I think,the item is only 25$ I am in no hurry.
From that chevy article it looks easy enough to make a clamp to make sure there is no air under the lining

I have recently re lined my shoes on my E93A - just used two punches and started from the middle outwards - all went quite well.
