Nope, but after a new shaft, platform and almost a new
gear,  the new shaft and gear are now one.
Welded the suckers together. Lasted longer than it ever has before.  
How in the world anyone could ever expect those keys to hold
up is beyond me.  And, of course they never do.
Sheesh,  can't anyone  make an REAL rotor?

Turning a TH6 and  a 2 el Cushcraft 40  and a few VHF antennas.
