Not the one I've got here. It's 3.24mm

There's more than one dimension in use for the flats though, hence the different spoke key sizes available.

Tolerance wise I'm going with a leisurely .5mm all round so shouldn't be too much of an issue.

and the distance across the flats doesn't worry me too much, it doesn't vastly impact on my design, I just need a hole large enough to pass them through.

Cheers once again
