Ya, Ya, you betcha! *G*

Can't recall if it's square of woodruff though...keyway for woodruff key is kinda like a half-moon in depth...the key looks like nearly half a disc

Square looks like square *G*

Most hardware stores will have the square stock but I prefer the harder stuff sold at industrial supply houses...they'll have a selection of woodruff keys as well.

Hope that helps!
