    Like I said, not much real life experience, I am sure you've seen more in real life. But a quick statistical analysis ( :) ) based on images on google does not support the 'planned...

    Two front gears are still keyed on to the shaft and, if key is broken, that happened behind them. So, even a burr there wouldn't stop them from being able to stay in place while the shaft is being...
