ok if i understand you correctly, you have a milling machine. so if i perceive the challenge correctly, a criterion boring head or a rotary table will allow for any radius cut you are trying to cut. you would have to have a custom "key seat" cutter made to fit your needs exactly

( the female end) with the correct inside radius,,was the reason for the question about the woodruff cutter.  Thank's again.

got it....
if your mill is a r-8 spindle taper, find a small boring head on ebay. you will be able to cut the radius you need by incrementally creeping up on the final radius. boring heads are a great tool to have, just this morning i cut a paper patch bullet  mold with a single point cutter, and slowly working my way up to the preferred diameter.
