Brakes - heads-up

One of the magnets failed on my Argyle SE.  The give-away was an occasional screech.

The advice of the brake specialist was to replace the backing plates and everything on them as the working pair of shoes had worn out as well.

He provided a useful tip, and that was that most folk adjust for shoe wear by cinching up the cable.  Apparently that just pushes one edge on each shoe out.  What's needed is to take the drum off and turn the star wheel inside.
