Treacher's has standard brakes with steel backplates whilst the other two have the Stevenage Lightning sort using magnesium plates with finned drums. Diameter is 7-inches, type single-leading-shoe and duo of course. (Below) A buckden workshop study of Tony Maughan, sorting out a twin. The big central idler wheel has a hunting tooth to equalise wear.
