Welcome to the Skim My Discs website...

The aim of this site is:

1to help drivers find service centres where they can get the right brake expertise
2to explain the facts about brake problems and solutions
Brake disc skimming is a lower cost alternative to brake disc replacement

This site is maintained by Haweka, official distributor of Pro-Cut on-car brake lathes, the best on-vehicle disc skimming machines in the world. We have over 12 years experience in machining brake discs directly on the car and solving drivers’ problems.

Brake disc skimming with a Pro-Cut machine will...

  • Stop brake pedal pulsation, juddering, squeaks and squeals
  • Improve braking performance on your vehicle - increasing safety whilst driving
  • Save money on your vehicle service.

Some More Important Facts...

  • The Pro-Cut process works on all types of metal discs: solid, vented, drilled, grooved, front and rear, on all vehicles up to 3.5 tonnes.
  • Brake pedal pulsation results from uneven wear of brake discs. This is caused by very slight mis-alignment of the discs and/or the vehicle hubs, known technically as “run-out”. The Pro-Cut lathe overcomes this problem by machining the disc directly on the vehicle.
