Just for the record, this is regarding a lathe, not a gun..... How do you remove a dowel pin that is staked on both sides? It is run off center, through a gear, so the gear is held on a shaft, but can freely turn. So, you have to hold the gear, and the teeth interfere somewhat with removal. I have moved it a little, to the point it's up against one of the stakes. Now I know it's not a taper pin, the rebuild book on this lathe says it's not. Is there a specific procedure for doing this? Or do you just have to use enough force to overcome the stake?
