Brake Lathe

A brake lathe machine is used to trim off a small amount of the brake rotor to make the surface smooth and even again. This process is called “true”. To true the brake rotor the machine files off a small layer of the rotor on both sides until the rotor is smooth and uniformly even on both sides.
