DON"T use a oxy / acet. torch. Use a propane soldering torch. I have done this a couple of times and it has worked for me.
1.) spray them a couple of times with brake clean. Let them dry well.
2.) Using a propane torch, start working slowly back and forth on the lining. The oil will start to cook off, and it will catch fire. take your time, letting the band and lining cool a bit every so often. Important thing here is to not let the lining or the band overheat. do this in a VERY well ventilated area.
3.) When the bands are oil free and cool, take about 80 grit emery paper and scuff them. Sand blasting can work as well. this will remove the glaze and carbon.
4.) rinse one last time with brake clean to remove any leftover grit or sand.
Install, and wear the BIG SMILE well that you salvaged a perfectly good set of brake bands, and left more of the play money in your wallet for other things.
