Disc thickness (or thin-ness)

Post by ard126k » Mon Jul 23, 2018 5:58 pm

Looking back at some old Slices I found a Rewmination which said that discs could safely be skimmed to " 045" " Now Slice at that time was famous for Triping mistooks which this must have been, but seriously - does anyone happen to know the minimum thickness for Lockheed discs? Thinking of having mine done!

Not worth it - I used to have discs skimmed until I had one break away from the centre where you could not see how much metal there was - new discs for evermore.
