I thought everybody did their own linings, but everyone I spoke to sends them away for riveting and/or bonding.
My local motor factors wouldn't rivet the linings I got from S&V, because they said the material was so soft that their hydraulic press would destroy them. I do understand that it is best to use soft linings on cable-braked old cars.
So it was back to DIY, which I really wanted to do anyway.....
To supply the correct rivet punch, I had very prompt service from Auto & Industrial Services of Arlesley, Bedfordshire (01462- 834778). I was advised which of their three punches was the right size - they even knew which size rivet was for 1932 J2 brakes!
Punch arrived next day and cost 14.40.
Didn't take long to do, just needs a little manual dexterity and only gentle hammering.
(After the linings were attached, I chamfered the lining ends)

Brian - a very timely post!

This is a job I have been long delaying for want of a suitable rivet tool.

I have just contacted http://www.autoandindustrial.co.uk/ and was very impressed; a rivet punch is now on its way!

Good photos there too!

Many thanks!

Hi. Just to say,I had a problem with electrolysis between the copper rivet and the alloy shoe . This reduced the shoe to scrap. Strangely it only affected one shoe. I have since had the linings bonded on. The plus point here no rivets so a greater area of lining. John
