English translation:keyway, key seat
Explanation:
The second suggestion "...roughneck" refers to a job description for people that work in oil rigs and therefore is not applicable in your case. The text in spanish seems to refer to a Norma Oficial Mexicana and they use keyway to describe a keyhole to remove a protecting grid from a moving machine. It requires that the part slides up and out or down an out of the "cuñero". Good Luck!
