Re: Woodruff Key

It is in a half-moon or semi-circle shape. I couldn't get metric key that small, so i filed a larger one down to fit.

I was able to fit the points plate, but only after gluing the key in place. Fits great now, but the glue was necessary. It would not go together at all with a loose key.

Woodruff Key
