I made my own 1/2" G10 rotor with nothing more than a band saw to rough cut
the rotor and a rotary die grinder (like a big Dremel tool) with a tungsten
carbide cutter for fine machining. I almost gave up trying to get the rotor
perfectly round and almost took it to a machine shop, but I was determined
and eventually thought of a way to do this myself. The rotor turned out very
well and I would estimate is within a few mils of being perfectly round. If
you are interested in my technique I can tell you about it.
