A brake lathe is an efficient tool for curing noise and vibration problems, often prolonging the life
of brake systems. Basically, brake lathes correct thickness variations on the rotor. Machining discs
with the on-car brake lathe delivers improved braking performance for customers, eliminates brake
vibration and excessive noises, and removes rust and corrosion.

Clean contact surfaces then fit the adapter using the
correct wheel bolts (30Nm of torque). DO NOT use an
Impact wrench.

Set the lathe to mid-height of gas strut and adjust vehicle height to the lathe. Attach machine to adapter
and tighten the large knob by hand. Position the cutting head with arms in line with disc (A). Ensure dovetail
is tight and secure mounting bolt. Then check for any obstructions before winding the head outwards so the
tips just clear the disc (equally on either side). Set ‘Stop’ switch (B) and lock trolley handle (C).

Start machine via on/off switch on motor and press the start button until the red adjusting light flashes. DO
NOT disturb lathe or vehicle during this process. Green lights = ‘Finished compensation’ and ready to go.

With the lathe still running, feed the cutting head in approx 10mm. Adjust arms until the tips contact the
disc on both sides. Tighten the ‘Butterfly’ on the cutting head and ‘feed out’ until lip on the edge of the
disc has been removed. Feed in until disc faces are ‘rough cut’ to same thickness (A). TAKE CARE not to hit
disc centre. Loosen the ‘Butterfly’ knob and adjust cutting heads for final cut – minimum 0.004” (0.1mm) to
maximum 0.020” (0.5mm). Stop machine and fit silencer (B). Start machine and push in auto-feed knob to
engage for final cut (C).
