#406 Woodruff Key and Keyseat

#406 Woodruff Key and Keyseat

I need the dimensions of a #406 Woodruff Key and Keyseat. Including; metric width, depth of each, and diameter.  Thanks in advance.

RE: #406 Woodruff Key and Keyseat

Link to a page that has the basic dimensions. A #406 is by definition in the standard as being in inch units, do your own conversion.


Simple Internet search for Woodruff keys found hundreds of pages.

Those 100 pages don't include dimensions.  That's how I found this page.  But thanks anyway.

RE: #406 Woodruff Key and Keyseat

The PDF file does include dimensions.
A #406 key is 1/8" thick by 3/4" diameter nominal.

I somehow missed the link you provided.  Thanks for the info.  I found the keyway depth elsewhere.
