Default RE: Question about mounting sprockets

DVP i have many friends who own shops with mills,lathes,cncs ets...They all agree that a keyway on a such a small axle is a big no.First of all a keyway is going to weaken the axle and second is too much a pain in the @@s to make the middle point dead on 90 degrees.I don't say it can't be done,everything can...The question is,is it worth it when you can follow a much easier way?

Also,you have to drill the axle on the flat.I'll take a pic of my old one to show you what i mean
