  • Anchor Brake Band Lining

    A friend of a friend took their orals in South Africa earlier today and has been told to come back tomorrow morning with an answer to the following question:
    "What is the rule of thumb for when the lining needs to be replaced on the anchor brake band?"

    He'd already gone through: when it's showing signs of wear (of various kinds), and as according to criteria set out in the manual. I get the feeling that this is a fairly 'old school' examiner. Do any of you lamp swingers have any idea? I have several that I would go with in the absence of a manual, but I wouldn't say any of them were THE rule of thumb, just application of common sense and typical signs of wear.
