Non-Directional Rotor Finishes

Today, non-directional finishes on new brake rotors still serve the same purpose, but they also help in the bedding of some friction formulations.

Back in the day, a non-directional rotor finish was the method used to solve a common problem that occurred on bench brake lathes.
