  • Disk Brake

    Hi there

    I'm doing a mirror finish on a Harley stainless disk brake. I do about 5 every weeks, and it takes me around 90 min. to do one. The company who gives me those disk says that i'm taking to much time to do it. They said to me that it should take me 60 min. to do one or less and they don't want to pay more because of that.

    To do a disk I start with 220 grit grinder 12 min.
    400 grit grinder 14 min.
    600 grit grinder 12 min.
    Grey for stainless compound 36 min. 12" spiral 1/4" stitch
    Green for stainless compound 10 min. 12" spiral 1/4" stitch
    Blue rouge compound 6 min. 8" spiral Flannel 1" stitch

    If you have any suggestion I will take it

    tkx everybody

    Try using a dual action sander for flat areas. That should cut the metal down quite quickly for your sanding steps.
