    I like your style, rugged but simple. Very cool! Have you seen my knives. Check them out. You may get some ideas! Thanks. Triumphman.

    I'm not sure how you removed the friction material from the pad, but cutting, grinding, or drilling, etc. them is a health hazard. Especially if they're old pads containing asbestos.

    If they are anything like my last set of brake pads, you don't have to do ANYTHING to get the friction material off. Time, vibration, and rust had neatly separated the pad material from the backing plate.
    I suggest that a sharp wood chisel and hammer would work equally well, if the pad was not already loose.

    Good call mentioning the asbestos though. Old cars might still have that style, and who knows about what you'll find in 2nd and 3rd world nations.
