I've never had to dismantle one of these machines, however regarding
pins, they are likely tapered and easy to recognize as one end is larger
than the other. If not tapered then likely knurled in the middle, so tap
out carefully. Use a nail set if the head of the pin is concave,
otherwise you run the risk of flattening it and making it all the harder

, perhaps they can advise.
Years ago when I first got my machines I recall that the owner there was
helpful to me getting parts and getting the machines to operate with a
few words of advice when I described the problem - perhaps fifteen years
or so ago. Still, worth a phone call!
