Brake Lathes, Bench Lathes and Accessories

Does your shop routinely perform brake work? Then you probably already know that a brake lathe is an indispensable piece of equipment for you. A bench lathe is an absolute must for resurfacing rotors and drums. An on-car lathe is also a fantastic tool for turning those troublesome rotors on vehicles sensitive to rotor runout and those with captured rotors.

But you may be wondering why you should bother buying one—or if it's even worth buying a new one for your shop. Our experts all agree: they are necessary, and every year, innovation in technology makes massive improvements. If you've been sending out rotors for resurfacing, you undoubtedly know that often takes far too long and comes with a risk if the returned rotor comes with runout or finishing issues. Having a brake lathe and bench lathe at hand in your shop is easier to manage, plus more time and cost-efficient.


Why resurface a rotor in the first place? Better to resurface the rotors, especially if there's enough metal left for another 50-60,000 miles, meaning you save time from having to replace a perfectly good rotor, and you keep your customers happy without the added cost of new rotors.

At Best Buy Auto Equipment, we have a brake lathe or bench lathe that can handle anything from a small compact car rotor to a large truck or heavy-duty vehicle to give your shop or garage even more versatility than ever.

You may feel a bit overwhelmed by our collection, but don't worry. To help you search for exactly what you need, you can sort our inventory by price, by brand, choose a subcategory to look through, or even click on the brand logos of Accu-Turn, JET, and Ranger. Additionally, you can further filter products by popularity, title, manufacturer, newest and oldest.

Regardless of which brake lathe or bench lathe you choose, your return on investment will be well worth it. A new brake lathe can pay for itself quickly in a high-volume shop, becoming an actual profit center. Would you like to know more about a particular brake lathe, or have questions about which is best for you? Please feel free to reach out and contact us today. You can call us toll-free at 855-275-5141. It would be our pleasure to help find the lathe perfect for you.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: What is a brake lathe?

A: A brake lathe is a machine that fixes noise and vibration problems that are often experienced after heavy brake use. It corrects the thickness of the rotor, which is often damaged by continuous and uneven contact of a brake pad on the rotor’s surface or rust on the rotor’s surface. The two types of brake lathes include on-car lathes and off-car lathes.

Q: How much is a brake lathe?

A: The cost of a brake lathe is going to depend on its features and the manufacturer who built it. The least expensive brake lathe on our website, for example, comes from Accu-Turn and costs around $7,790 US dollars. Our most expensive one sold by itself costs around $16,110 US dollars, though you can also find combos with tire changers and wheel balancers for a little more or less money.

Q: What is a bench brake lathe?

A: A bench lathe is simply a brake lathe mounted on a workbench. It’s also called an off-car lathe because the rotor is removed from the car and then mounted to the lathe, as opposed to the on-car lathe that is installed in the same position as the brake caliper in the car. In general, on-car brake lathes tend to be more reliable than their off-car counterparts.
