[EMS Discuss] Disc brake

You always ask the most interesting questions. (-:
Sure. Anything is possible.
The disc is probably the easiest part of a disk braking system to
manufacture. It is just a round thing. The caliper, master cylinder, and
pads are much harder. (Especially the caliper.)
You can start with a plate of metal, drill a hole in the center, cut it
round, and drill some other holes for bolts. Then you have to balance it.
Those are all fairly high precision operations and challenging for a new
lathe user. But I think it's possible.
But if you already have caliper, master cylinder, and pads from an existing
brake system, why not use the existing disc too? Is it a matter of mating
it to a different axle?
