Spent some time shortening a shaft l had and got a keyway cut on Wednesday.
Then spent 1/2 A day fitting it to the coupling with a fitted key so it would fit nice but not be to hard to remove when needed .
Today l fitted the 2 blade prop that l want to run but that ment a special key just for that prop .
Next was to cut some slots in a s/s nut for split pin . Tomorrow l will then make a std key for the other props .
Keys need to be fitted so that they don't lock the prop on before the prop is seated on the shaft ..Nothing worse than the prop that is dificult to remove.
