GVRD Shops with Pro-Cut Rotor lathe?

Been trying to look around, anyone knows of anything that can point me in the right direction?

Pro-Cut Parts

i can't find a local shop with this, but someone MUST have something like this at their shop.

I gotta have some slotted rotors lathed, the runout is getting worst even after adjustments.

Many shops have an on car lathe. Finding a shop that is willing to machine slotted rotors will be the tough part.

well, a pro-cut type shouldn't be an issue since they're designed to do just that...

Designed to cut slotted rotors? Where does it say that?

i checked a few site. pro-cut are EBC's own affiliation\associate\product. EBC sells rotors, and i found a few videos of EBC machining slotted rotors.

I know the main purpose of the on car lathe is to eliminate drivetrain runout variables by machining the rotor attached to the vehicle as an assembly. I've actually used the procut machine quite a few times and I don't see how it is any better at cutting slotted rotors than a bench lathe can. I've never seen the EBC video but it almost sounds a little misleading to the consumer.

well, assuming it uses a different cutting process\different version of lathe, i can't see why it won't?

Are there any local shops that will turn slotted or drilled rotors?

Any lathe can cut slotted/drilled rotors.

Sorry, I meant the OP looking for a pro-cut lathe. I don't run drilled or slotted rotors, but yes - any lathe can technically cut slotted/rotors.

I'm looking specifically for a pro-cut lathe to resolve disc thickness variation due to vehicle runout and rotor misalignment. A regular lathe will resolve the issue temporarily but likely resurface because the issue is closer related to steering geometry than it is a smooth surface. If I get the rotor machined on the hub it will balance out the surface smoothly based on the steering geometry as it pertains to my vehicle. In overly simplistic terms it's like an alignment for your rotors based off your vehicle alignment.

If anyone know of pro-cut authorized shops locally I'd appreciate it...if not I'll just go across the border.

Gotcha.

Idk if they're Pro-Cut, specifically but I know a couple of dealerships that use on-car lathes.

Awesome, I'd be willing to check them out. Could you either post them or pm me?

This is actually exactly the reason I needed to find a pro-cut lathe. I have "red stuff" brake pads, and it's known to leave residue on the rotors that make the rotor feel like they're warped. But I spent big bucks on the rotor knowing the pads high performance needs so they're not shit that easily.

Anyhow, I did contact pro-cut for a Vancouver shop, and these are the places that they sent me with a pro-cut lathe. I had it done at do-most, can't recall how much I paid.

Do Most Auto Repairs - 799 Kingsway, Vancouver 604-872-3008
Vancouver Honda - 850 S. W. Marine Dr, Vancouver - 604-324-6666
Brown Bros Ford - 270 S. W. Marine Dr, Vancouver - 604-321-5100

And it did make my rotors like new again.

Dude I run the EBC Red as well! It's only recently I noticed some vibration when getting on the brakes at higher speed. I put them on almost a year and a half ago...maybe closer to two years with new rotors so they'd have the best chance of a smooth break in. Thanks for the info!

In that case you will totally need the procut lathe! Be warned though, that vibration will come back. It's a bitch...I think it's because I'm in a lot of traffic...
