Dexter Hub PN 81-9A

Is this HUB still being made? I can not find one with bolts at 4.5 on a 4 inch circle.

Also, looking for the Spindle, part #BT-88???? I found something similar I think:

https://www.etrailer.com/Trailer-Spindles/Redline/R104BT8.html

https://www.southwestwheel.com/p-259-r204bt8x.aspx

These don't look like the one in the book or the website. Can someone point me to the right direction for these parts? If they are not available anymore what can I use that are the same dimensions? I am having a fried draw it all out in AutoCad and he has most of the drawings done but I told him to hold off on this until I know what I can get...


Thanks Everyone!

Long as the bolt pattern is correct any trailer hub will work.

Does it have to be a Dexter hub?

No, its just the other power book home-brew wind power suggest it and all the drawings are marked to it. My friend thats doing the CAD is not in the same state so I was trying to make it as close to the plans as I can. If the hub and spindle isn't the same as the plans I would really like to have one as close as possible. What do you guys suggest?

the reason the dexter hub was used was that back side of the hub has a machined surface so it is easy to use a nut  to lock the threaded rods in place.

Does anyone know of another brand of Hubs and Spindle that has a machined back? If not I will just have to find one with 41/2 on a 4 inch circle. I have found 4on4 but not a 4 1/2.


Thank you to everyone. Being new to this I appreciate everyones input.

I gave my hub a quick spin in a lathe.  Didn't need to take much off.
