Garage method of enlarging hole in brake rotor?

so the rotor i want to use has a smaller center diameter than the axle has. Aside from the obvious lathe or mill, neither i have, is there a good method to do this, or should I what and try to pay a machinist sometime in like Winter when I'll have the funding.

How much bigger does it need to go? Is the rotor a tighter fit onto the studs, or is there a lot of slop?
