Frankly what are you cleaning? Toss the parts - the 50s are over!

Yes, it's a brake washer and an antique one at that. What, are you trying to sell it? Probably be tough, not that popular

Comment: With grease permeating brake pads or shoes (as can happen with a blown axle seal) you really never get it out IMO. Plain brake fluid will wash out with just water.

You can clean metal parts with BrakeKlean is one brand - basically lacquer thinner I think in a spray can. DON'T LET BRAKE CLEANERS GET ON RUBBER PARTS! It will say that on the can or should.

Story: Long ago and pre paved roads you did have to remove wheels to dump out dust! I'm talking 1930s and 40s! A wheel would lock up from the dirt. Those were drum brakes as disc wasn't popular in much back then but some machines used disc brakes! By nature a disc brake will throw dirt and water off it - a drum style won't,

Tom, I don't think this has anything to do with fixing a car. He just has a piece of old equipment that he want to know if it's worth anything.

The 'brake washers' were required by OSHA, years ago. You would fill them with solvent or a detergent so as not to allow asbestos dust into the air. Asbestos is not used in brakes, anymore, so it's pretty much worthless now.
