I am wanting to animate 4 bolts slotting into a hole with washers and sleeves slotting in also. I have animated one set of the bolt/washer/sleeve slotting in and i was wondering if there is an easy way to copy the keyframes over to the other 3 sets so they are all synchronised?

Also when i set key frames up for rotating the bolt, the bolt moves first the wrong way and then spins round the right way. I think this is something to do with curves??? can you switch curves off for one object?
