As much as machinist's charge for one-off pieces, it will most likely cost less to just purchase a wave rotor. I picked this one up about a month ago:
rearbrake

http://www.kneedraggers.com/details/...-GALF-215.html

If you do end up getting it machined, make sure he chamfers all of the edges or it will eat up the pads real bad. I got a tip from Patrick about the EBC wave rotors. They do not chamfer the edges after machining, so you have to hit them with some sand paper to save your pads.

It costs $70 to machine. More quality, you get discounts. I have galfer wavy rotors now, but want this on the rear so rear end won't lock up yet still works. I almost crash last time locking up the rear :(

Ask for Mark Kinkaid. Tell him Jeff Brown sent you.
They are off Hempstead Hwy. near Gessner.
Absolute top notch quality work.

Not only will the pads tend to "fall" into the gaping trenches and bite the rotor causing a near lock up, but after a many attempts it will wear the pads quickly in a v shape and eventually severing the rotor at the weakest point in the center.
(notice the dark circle in the center)
I can't imagine how fun that will be.
If I installed a custom component on my steed I need someone reputable to guarantee it.

chamfers are for when the rotors get heat treated they dont crack but if they help save pad life then i highly doubt it though
