Have a look at Classic Brake Service site, in High Peak, Derbyshire.
They have linings for all applications. Their linings are bonded and rivetted on the shoes (belt and braces !) and then machined to the drum diameter. If it is necessary, the drum is skimmed with the Wheel built.
J.N.


Linings were done by Villiers services. They were done with a measurement of the diameter of the drum and the assembled linings on the brake plate. And then the thickest linings allowable fitted. It's my error for not noticing the drum being off. But the wheels were the only tidy things about the bike. That should have set the alarm bells off. They're not from this bike. Thanks for the help everyone.

Here's a pic of a DIY tool based on a flycutter bar in a weapon which locks onto wheel spindle and has up/down in/out movement. Works quite well.
