Step Key Stock
Step key stock is used to form a part referred to as a machine key, and these fit within keyways to transmit power from shafts to bushings. Crafted as square or rectangular shaped devices, machine key stock is typically used on keyways that may be damaged or have inconsistencies. Many of our stainless steel key stock items have a zinc coating for additional protection. These tools can also be used with couplings, gears, sprockets and more. For extra applications that would require square key stock, we have various machine keys, such as oversized key stock and undersized key stock.
