ElCheapo,I've got a pair of 550 rotors that I intend to send to you but I've got a slight problem with them. I was having a friend turn them on his brake machine and after he got about half way done his bit took a dump and started to chatter. The so he quit until the Snap On man show up and he can get a box or replacement cutters. It appears the Snap On man is out making more money selling scrap metal and hasn't been around. So I've got two half turned disks. Is it better to have him finish turning them (there's plenty of metal to stay within the 6mm minimum) before I send them to you or does it make any difference? My thinking is that if it doesn't matter I can send the disks to you and order a set of cutters for him tomorrow and have them both back here at about the same time and be finished with it. Of course it may be best that he finish turning them first. What do you think? Think of it this way, I'm nothing but the wallet inbetween him and you, but someone needs to tell me what to do.
I am no expert but have watched a brake lathe work and I would guess that cutting them on the lathe after drilling is going to be a nightmare. my 2 unsolicited cents
