Not yet :roll: A keyseater is on my bucket list but finding one at an affordable price and close enough to me to pick up hasn't happened yet. I have a set of DuMont push broaches for keying hubs and I popped for a couple rotary broach tool holders (top picture) for blind broaching jobs. Very pricey and work great for socket forms like Torx, polygons, or small splines but they don't have the oomph to remove enough steel for anything other than tiny rectangular keyways. For blind keyways in hubs I currently do it the old fashion way - bottom picture. I use a series of repeated plunge cuts with a homemade tool holder and hand ground HSS bit in the vertical spindle of the mill. Patience is a virtue (.005 -.007 DOC) - broken bits really slow production down :shock: I crank the knee up and down by hand and it's better than curls for developing forearms and biceps ;-)
