Deglazing just a matter of sanding clean?

I was planning on drilling the rotor anyway.

It gets better  ;D
 I got some Chrome levers off eBay because I was thinking about going with drum brake.
They turned up this afternoon as well  8)
Not the best quality in the world but they do have the built in brake switch and they were cheap ;) (and they are shiny  ;D)


 I also made some screens for brake drum holes, they are shaped to fit 'flush' with outside edge, going to makee a push piece and 'glue' them in with DEVCON as it has higher temperature rating than most epoxies, should look better than a big step you get with internal mounted ones ?

What are your thoughts on relining shoes for these old drums? I've used some pretty vicious stuff meant for forklifts and such. Works great but does seem to beat up the drum lining a bit.

I think Boyd's pockets were pretty deep and he was kind of a wanker....

Maybe, but a frind of mine knew him and said he wasnt the idiot TV made him out to be, must have paid him a lot to do the things he was doing.
 Anyway,
 been doing a bit (not much, but something  ;))
 Today has beeen busy
 Got one XS rim cleaned up,  finished with heavy 'work' just needs the polishing compound removed from between spoke head 'dimples' and any other bits where it stuck. It looks a hell of a lot shinier in 'real life'

 Did a LOT of work on drum brake hub.
 Filed off the cross piece (don;t have a machine to do it, plus, anyone can copy this now)
 Did 12 'bumps out of 16 (4 'hollows' between spoke flanges, 4 casting seperation bits)
 Thought there has to be an easier way. well, there is.
 DREMEL......forgot my wife bought me one about 7 yrs ago  ::) (normally use full size die grinders)
 Anyway, got ridge trimmed down then finished off with file.
 Cleaned up all corrosion between spoke flanges and painted it with caliper paint.
 Then.........removed paint from top of 'fins'
 Heres before and after
Before (before I took wheel apart  :D)

 After (several hours of filing and cleaning, about 3:10pm today until 40 mins ago)


 Dont mount hub into forks and spin it when painting, paint centrifuges up to top of fines and flings off making a right mess  ::)
 I also finished off the top yoke but forgot to take any pictures.

Brake drum holes and screens are real nice PJ. I really like the work on the fins too. The wheels on this thing are gonna rock. Really nice work so far. Keep it up.

I did work for Honda when the swinging arm brake was current so I know exactly how it works.

PJ

I don't want to hijack your thread, but I've been having lots of trouble with my swinging arm disk dragging. Can you help me, please?

Fins came out pretty nicely, but why not use a lathe? File work is no fun.

 your right about using file, but, it proves anyone can do it with a bit of time and effort.  ;D
 I would love to use a lathe but I dont have one that would mount a anything as big as brake drum (my little 'toy' benchtop lathe is good for valve guides and cable adjusters though  ;))

Here's what the drum ended up like after polishing outside.
 still needs going over with a rag to remove some compound.
 got to 'glue' mesh in place and build wheel

Certainly looks the business. You must be running one of the many 7-12 lathes out there? Grizzly, Harbor Freight or Jett? Before I lucked into the Leviathan I was running a Jett 9-20 that worked out ok. Not nearly enough to heavy work but most motorcycle stuff was pretty do-able.
