    use trailer hub and bearing for driving 1" steel shaft

    has someone used a hub. and fixed it so steel shaft can be turned, by an electric motor with pulley and belt?in other words hub stays still and shaft spins in bearing?its for a machine build.

    Go to Youtube and search "welding positioner". Even if you're not intending to rotate something being welded, there are lots of videos there that could give you some ideas you could build upon.

    Ummm... Excuse me but is that a home made lathe, it looks like it was cast with concrete?

    I made a band sawmill mill nearly 20 years ago, and used trailer hubs (bolted the hub to the plate, and with the four bolts was able to shim it parallel, use the stub shaft to mount the wheels that ran the band blade, and the pulley from the engine, I will try to post a picture not the best but one I took many years ago,
