machined rotors are fine as long as they have not been machined so much that they are thinner than the minimum allowable.

obviously they won't have as much life left in them as brand new but they will work just as well.

They've gone down 2mm under what they were originally. I wouldn't machine them again.

I that is the already machined finished size they will be ok for at least one set of pads and depending on how you drive and klms you do could get a year or more out of them.
Then you will be up for new discs depending on if the pads gouge the discs or not.
I've done 5yrs and 39,000klms on my current set of pads, genuine AP 2500's pads.

go down and buy yourself some new rotors, slotted but not drilled, they are very good on commodores. Bendix brake pads to suit. cant wrong.

For the price you can buy new rotors, why bother with machined. I have slotted, and dimpled rotors on my GTS. EBC Red pads as well.
Once bedded in, they are great.
Bendix are good pads as well. I usually use Bendix, but the EBC came with the rotors.

Agreed with the above, GSLRallysport sell DBA T3's (and plain) rotors so cheap there's just no better option.

My personal preference is QFM HPX pads, they make a great companion.

Check the actual thickness of each Rotor before purchasing otherwise could result in a complete waste of money and eternal disappointment.

Eternal disappointment over some 2nd hand brake rotors would indicate some serious mental issues.
