1) Where corresponding dimensions are involved, particularly f'or shaft extensions, allocation of the Woodruff
key cross-sections appropriate to the shaft diameters concerned must be observed. Allocation I applies in
all cases where the Woodruff key is used in the role of a feather key, i.e. to transmit the whole of the

element, other elements, e.g. cotters or tapers being employed to transmit the torque.
