We have a shaft that has a woodruff key that needs to be removed in order to replace a bearing. What is the best method to get the woodruff key out? I know they can be a real pain and I just wanted to see if anyone had a good way to get them out. Any ideas appreciated.
Heat the key red hot with a torch. When cool it should be much easier to remove.
