What are these "HUB PARTS" ? Look like cut-outs from a fab-shop... if they are 13/16" thick; woodruff keys if they are 13/16" in length. What Bicycle used woodruff keys?

Thank You Catfish! That would be the 'woodruff' keys. Are they used in Three Piece peddle crank set-ups? Multiple speed rear hub where chain sprocket(s) attach?

I can't believe they are worth $7.00 bucks per pair... I'm sure the local farm store has them. Maybe it's just that I've never gotten over 5 cent cokes and full size snicker's bars going to 10 cents each!???

What catfish said, 98% sure those are NOT cycle related, unless you put an engine on one...lol!

My Hercules 3 speed has pawls in it, but I don't know if that's the correct size. Sturmey-Archer and other internal gear hubs have them, too.

I think there's a coaster brake hub that uses them, but I'm not sure. Maybe Sachs?

I think the "senile" feeling you're getting, is "why do I care what these are for?" ;)

I recall using those more then once. I just can't remember on what. I think it was on a compressor shaft like Catfish said.
I do recall getting the shaft a couple times on things I have bought.......

Bendix used a set of brake shoe keys, that are about the same size, but they are rectangular in shape.
Maybe Mussleman?

Yup and it's been a lot of years but, I use to just go to a hardware and or auto store where they'd have multiple boxes with assorted sizes for a few pennies each. So, regardless of 5 cent candy bars, 6-7 bucks sounds, awfully steep.
