Project the center point of the model itself, sketch a (center) line from that center point, then draw your slot. I located it some distance from an existing shoulder by dimensioning to that shoulder, without having to project it, by the way.

What points do you mean?

Put the workplane where you want the bottom of the keyseat, new sketch (F7 to view the sketch plane), sketch the keyseat, extrude cut thru all

Have you considered using the keyway generator in Design Accelerator?
