You would need a brake lathe and a micrometer. Use the micrometer to measure the thickness and then if there up to spec, use a brake lathe. Or simply just take them to your local parts dealer or mechanic (costs around $15.00) +

I always get a second opinion on the "micrometer" interpretation by the shop- most want to sell a rotor and err on the side of loss of thickness. NAPA turns them for $5.00. Depending on your locale I am guessing you use different terminology... yet "turning" rotors is generally the term in the south. 2Dynamic

I had to drill a hole on the side of the old rotors. make sure the hole is out towards the front edge of the rotor. You want to have a hole that shows the line where the rotor and axle meet. Then I took a hammer and a pointed punch and they came off.
