Not a prob 13rebel, no need to beat yourself up about it. I would have tried the outside taper pins as it certainly would be less effort, if I was not so worried about getting the replacement pins to look neat. Being a bit of a sledge hammer person :smash: I thought it more prudent to try to repair the damage done inside where it matters a little less if the finish is not so perfect. MM

I've never had to remove the outer pins on handle or trigger, but Gameswat has encountered more allwins than I have. I still think, with the right tools, filing off the ends and following Widget's advice about supporting the shaft, you should have no problem getting those pins out. Seems like they need to be replaced anyway. If you follow Gameswat's suggestion and remove the outer pins, you'll probably want to replace them and file flush before rechroming, so they're hidden behind the chrome again - in which case, you'll still want to remove the other pins.

You do realize you may have caused an international incident by asking this question. !:STOP:!

If I re-chrome after re-attaching the handles with pins, won't that mean I will never be able to get them off again? What international incident? Have I breached some protocol? '!'

You shouldn't need to get them off, but it would be the same process - scrape off chrome and whack the pin.

No, but I may have (I usually do).

I hesitate to ask this question, having stirred up such a poop storm the last time, but here goes. Does anyone know where I can get 1/4 inch ply to replace the back board of this machine. Woodworm have had breakfast lunch and supper for years leaving it looking like Swiss cheese. All the DIY shops here are in metric and the closest in metric sticks out the back by a few mm. Really annoying. :dammit:
