[TCML] my recommendation for a SRSG motor arbor

When I built my first one, I got it pretty close based upon the use of a
divider and scribed arcs to find the center of the disc, then laid the
flange onto this center mark and proceeded to mark the mounting holes.
Then I rigidly mounted the motor/disc assembly in place, and while the
motor rotated under reduced voltage, I used a lathe cutting tool set-up
to carefully turn the OD of the disc until there was no run-out, and
this resulted in a balanced disc. I used a variable AC supply initially
to avoid high RPMs in the unbalanced state until this was done. The G-10
cuts very easily.

David, how did you ensure that the center of the bushing was concentric
the center of your disc?
I'm using a shaft arbor right now, which means a hole in the center of
disk (pretty easy), but I can't for the life of me figure out how to
the holes on the disk to correspond with a bushing hole pattern without
having access to a mill or an X-Y table. .
