Find one here: https://www.skf.com/au/products/rolling ... uts/keyway

Then, you can search their site by part number, or better yet, call ‘em.
Wish they wouldn't call them "lock washers". It's descriptive, but that terminology makes them hard to find.

Sure, and unlike the split ring kind they actually work. Still makes them hard to find, though.

Bearing guys, speak there own language. No different than machinists, or welders.....whatever.

I used to by 'em a couple at a time, and by the box....from.....bearing guys.
That's why I recommended going to a bearing house. Bearings, is what they were designed for....so.....
