Rear disc skim.

Hello. Any suggestions as to where I can get my rear disc skimmed? It is slightly out of true, needs a small skim. I’m in the midlands, Nuneaton area. Cheers, Ian.

Thurston engineering in north essex. They will orbital grind it not skim it. Grinding will get it perfectly flat and true.

Ian,
Make sure you request a smooth finish in the orbital grinding process as any type of course finish with produce brake chatter.
Regards
Steve
