Default Camry Rotor Specifications?

I have a 2000 Camry with the symptoms of warped rotors. I would like
to check for warp myself before taking it in. Can anyone give me the
specifications and procedure? I am a machinist by trade and have a
wide array of measuring tools.

Remove the road wheel, then while the hub and rotor are jacked up, get a
helper to slowly turn the hub while you firmly hold a dial indicator, if you
have one, or just hold a screw-driver blade close to the outer edge of the
brakepad swept area of the rotor. This will give you a direct indication of
how much runout or out of true the rotor has.
NB
Before doing the runout check, make sure the road wheel is secure by
applying force at 3 and 9 oclock-12 and 6 oclock. There should not be more
than the a barely discernable amount of movement.

================
Factory repair manuals have the procedure:

Fix your dial indicator to a magnetic base.
