You'll see from the photo opposite that we have modern disc skimming and refacing equipment.
This means that we are able to machine and reface both front and rear brake discs on most vehicles.
These days, it can often be more economical to replace discs as they are available at reasonable prices for more common vehicles. However, on vehicles such as commercial or 4 x 4 it is often a long labour intensive process to remove the old discs and fit new. This is where Autolubes brake lathe comes in as we are able to machine the discs whilst still on the vehicle.
Whenever we find disc replacement may be necessary, we always consider skimming the discs as an option and work out the most economical route for repair.
