Brake Shoe Arching

Where would you go to get brake shoes arched to fit the brake drums?
Racing a NA NHRA stocker should be mandatory before any posting.

The only arcing machine I've seen was at a heavy-duty driveline remanufacturer. They rebuilt transmissions, differentials, clutches and brake shoes for highway tractors and heavy-duty equipment. Find a heavy-duty repair shop that does brake jobs for oddball stuff like Payloaders and forklifts, they might know who has one in your area.

Both these companies will cut arc on the shoe lining to match the drums:
Porterfield
Rochester Brake and Clutch

Very different operations - one of them should work out for you.

I haven't seen the old universal linings that need to be arched in 40+ years... The modern style brake lining, you buy today is all ready arched...
