I would like to animate a rotation of the key on a vertical Z axis without changing its current position, like this:

enter image description here

When I press R then Z, the key rotates the way I want it to in the animation. I tried changing the Rotation Order, and applying Scale/Location/Rotation, and it didn't work.

However, when I keyframe the start and end point (R Z 360º), the resulting animation makes the key spin in a different direction.

Here are my Transform settings:

You have an empty (null) object controlling the rotation for your key object.

Animate the rotation for the empty and the object will follow.
