Renowned TV mechanic and motoring journalist Fuzz Townshend, together with TV host Tim Shaw, makes use of the Pro-Cut on-car brake lathe on a Mazda RX7 in the last episode in the series of National Geographic’s Car SOS.
With the front end missing, accident damage, an unusual engine and a host of other faults to tackle, the episode eventually saw the car return to its former glory.
Fuzz asked Pro-Cut to bring its brake lathe to his workshop to resurface all four brake discs and bring them back to life.
In a press release, Pro-Cut said: “The car had not been driven for some time and the discs were heavily corroded.
“Resurfacing is a cheaper option than replacing discs and more importantly it also ensures perfect alignment and no possibility of run-out leading to brake vibrations.”
After filming, blagging petrol head Tim Shaw commented: “We could use that machine all the time – you should give us one.”
Network of garages
Over the years Pro-Cut has established a network of garages who use its equipment.
Pro-Cut’s ‘skim my discs’ website shows drivers where they can find such workshops and offers free advertising for garages using Pro-Cut brake lathes.
Pro-Cut is Europe’s leading specialist in offering solutions to vibration, braking and wheel balancing issues.
