How did you cut the keyway in the drive shaft ? Do you have a mill or
something ? Can you recommend a lo-tech approach for this task ?

I've tried a combination of drill press, dremel tool, chisel, and file. It
takes me forever to cut a keyway and there are as ugly as hell. Then again,
that matches my welds perfectly.

I've used 15-17 teeth sprockets for the drive spockets on 5/8" and 3/4"
shaft. If its a keyed shaft the set screw holds the key.
