Dana 60 rear drum brake service

I was also planning to service my rear drum brakes.

I'd liked to have my current drums turned if their not already too far gone. I'm not sure if the brake lathe I have access to is big enough for this job. Mostly if it's arbor is long enough since the wheel hubs are "staked" to the drums with the pressed in lugs. Guess I'll find out.

But, I was thinking. Even if I get new drums wouldn't they need to be "machined or centered" to the hubs after they are joined or is it not that critical?
