Laser Tools introduces new brake disc lip removal tool

Laser Tools has introduced a new brake disc lip removal tool, which quickly removes corrosion from the edge of the brake disc.

If you are fitting new brake pads, but you’re keeping the discs, because they’re still well within the manufacturer’s specification for thickness, corrosion on the edge of the discs is often a problem.

Sometimes the edge of the discs can be corroded, with a pronounced lip — and this lip can damage the new pads or even stop them fitting correctly.

Laser Tools has the answer: a new brake disc lip removal tool

Hand-operated, it will quickly remove the corrosion from the edge and smoothly cut back the lip on the face of the disc. Bolt on the handle and position the cutting edge of the tool against the disc. The secret is the super-hard steel cutter — it removes the lip with just a few turns of the disc — leaving a smooth, clean edge.

The same with that heavy corrosion on the outer edge of the disc, the cutter literally rips through the heavy build-up of corrosion. The result is a nice clean brake disc ready to take a new set of pads.

After many uses, when the blade becomes blunt, turn it around and you have a new, fresh, sharp edge. New replacement blades are readily available (part number 7840).

Remember when replacing brake pads, it’s best practice to clean up the disc, and this new tool from Laser Tools is just the job.
