Gib Key Extractor

I got a square piece of 10mm plate, holesaw to the shaft diameter and 4 M10 tapped holes in the corners, then quite a lot of filing later I had this...

The end result, looks like I was lucky the head didn't pull off as a previous owner had attacked it with an angry grinder by the look of it
