Thanks Tom. I appreciate that. For the moment, I'm trying to remove a set. It looks like I'll be drilling them out. I was wanting to confirm what I was up against. Thanks, Leonard

Oh yes. Please remember everybody. Tom's buying the beer for everyone that weighs in on this.

Well Tom, I guess you don't get to buy the beer after all. The keys are 7/8" wide. 4-3/4" long. And they are tapered, 9/16" on one end and 11/16" on the other end. I've earned every thousandth of an inch today. Thanks though, Leonard
