    Old School,
    If you have access to a drill press and do not have a lathe, you can put the arbor into the drill press chuck and use the jaws of the drill press vice as a file guide. You will be filing it vertically insead of horizontally as you would on a lathe but you still should get an acceptable result. You can mark off the 90 degree positions with some masking tape wrapped around the drill chuck and the vice jaws can provide sufficient locking force to hold the part while you are filing it.
