This is after it was welded and is mostly cleaned up,Its back together and running fine,Hopefully it will stay that way a long time!I used a piecee of key stock as a kind of form to replace the key way,then it can be removed to install an aluminum key

I vote for JB Weld.  I had a wood chipper with a damaged output shaft.  Ran for years with JB Weld.  If it will take that abuse, a tiller should be a breeze.  I made a key & a sleeve, installed the key, plastered on the JB & slide the sleeve over the shaft.  I split the sleeve so it would slide on past the key & hose clamped it tight.  Once it curred, I filed it to fit the chipper flywheel.

Wow! That keyway was in bad shape before it broke. Look at the crack on the other side.
