Re: Re-lining brake band question (SS12)
Old thread, I know but I used these rivets from mcmaster carr, worked great got em for my old DB stuff but they work on later Ropers too
I first tried copper pop rivets but they leave the steel ball at the end of the shaft in, and I thought it would soon gouge the drum so I switched to these brass ones
dlis, I used semi metallic, don'r remember why, maybe that was all they had in the width, thickness that I needed.
I heated it up wound it around the hot hub and clamped it until it cooled, might be better ways, but that's what I did
