I have a Marathon Electric Brake Arcing Machine. Works fine. $650
I would prefer local pickup. I am in Long Beach, CA. Rob 562-900-8106
Pretty sure those were made by Ammco- same folks that make drum and rotor lathes. Is it the motor that has the "Marathon" tag on it?
Dan is correct these use to be used on all quality drum brake jobs when the drums are turned (and still should be when heel toe is off) who ever uses this make sure you get the correct exhaust sock unless you can hold your breath along time.
What are y'all doing for the sanding rolls for these now??
McMaster-Carr has a pretty good offering:
Are brake lathes worth anything these days? If so Ive got an AMCO one I would like to find a home for. How does the brake arcing machine work?
My copy of the literature for the AMMCO brake shoe grinder is quite soiled and difficult to read. I had to use a zoom feature to view.

goodson tool sells abrasive rolls and most other parts as well
part number is as-7 for my ammco
Thank you guys for adding info on this machine. I appreciate it. Rob.
