Rear end key

Post by Feathers » Wed Jun 13, 2018 2:10 pm

Hello All
Dose anyone know the dimensions of the key that goes in the tapered hub on the Salisbury rear end?
A close friend of mine is a great tool guy and has done me a lot of favors over the years and there is no sense in him stopping now.
I found this one in the US but don’t know if it’s the right one.

Thanks

Sorry John, I did not look at the link before I replied.
The key shown may well be correct and will probably be 2in. long. The extra 1/4in. will include the chamfered portion on the end.
