Tanks D ale and please let us know how it goes Bryan!

Yow!  Here is the education I never had!  I will read this in detail soon and try out the process.  I've been damaging many old pocketknives by trying to pound the pin out; sometimes it works, but I've ruined enough that I will try the drill-it-out method.  Thanks, Dale, you've made my day.  --Bryan

Just passing this along, it was posted in the tools section and thought someone here could help

A message from Bryan OShaughnessy to all members of Tools for knife enthusiasts on iKnife Collector!

I've bought Dasco, Craftsmam,Home Depot and Ace Hardware punches to drive pins out of old pocketknives, and all of them have bent. I know the alternative could be a punch that breaks and flies explosively into bits of sharp-edged scrap-steel, but there must be a better tool to drive out pins than bending or shattering.  Looking for flat-point,pein-ended,and cross-pein.  Thanks for any advice, and best regards,
   ---Bryan OShaughnessy
