    I have a miller tilt top with electric brakes, I need replacement shoes and a magnet. Does anyone know where a person can find parts? the shoes are 5 1/2 X 12 1/4 . The magnet is a complete circle 10" diameter.

    Round magnets are obsolete.
    You sure of the 5.5 inch width?

    They are 5.5, if this setup will work, I will have to change everything including the backing plate. I don't know if the magnet will work. I am attaching a couple of pictures. There is a spring loaded ring of pads in the drum that the magnet rides on. IMG_5470.jpg IMG_5474.jpg IMG_5473.jpg

    That looks to be Warner 12.25x5.5, of which, my internet deep dive has found ZERO info, including conversion.

    I have not, I have thought about changing axles but that won't be a simple task or cheap.

    Sorry I am just now replying to you. I have not had any luck finding parts. Yours looks like mine only in much better shape.
