Re: Question about installing new brake linings on a 47
The brake lathe has a spindle on each end you mount the drum on one end and the shoes on the other end. You cut both at the same time. You won't see these in small shops these machaines run thousands of dollars.

How do you turn shoes, on a brake lathe? I've worked in a lot of shops, owned a couple of brake lathes, including Ammco and Accuturn. Neither were equipped in any way, to touch a brake shoe.
We turned the drum, to clean it up, then measured the drum, mounted the shoes (one at a time) in the arcing machine and matched them to the drum.
