Just a very small point, but one that I think is worth mentioning, is that asbestos hasn't been used in friction linings for some years now, as it was felt that lots of cars/other road vehicles producing a fine airborne dust wasn't a good thing. This is why brake pads & discs don't last as long as they used to, they need to be 'softer' than before.

This job should never be complete - the day I think I've done it all, is the day I resign.
