As you are a ford tech you know you can't turn those rotors.

*cough* *cough* sorry buddy you are wrong as this is the common misconception that drilled and slotted rotors cant be cut. only ceramic rotors can't be cut. Shop's don't like to cut them as they ruin the blades on the lathe, and that bites into the shop's $$$$$$$.

so you're saying ever shop is equipped to cut those rotors...I mean I'm sure it also depends upon how far passed spec you are too.

we use pro cut on car brake lathes at our dealer, but the principle is the same with any brake lathe, so don't let shops fool you.
