Does any one know any good pin removers? Maybe something like what is seen here?
The way he pushed that pin out so easily at 2:14 is more the exception than the rule in my experience and typically requires a little more oompf. I either use a spring-loaded adjustable automatic center punch to get it started, and then pull it out with needle nose pliers once enough of the textured end of the pin is exposed. (around $5-$10)
Or I use 1/16" pin punch along with a light hammer to carefully tap it out just enough for the pliers to grab. They're available in brass, polymers, hardened steel (forged alloy) for <$10 and I try to always get forged alloy steel and shorter tips because the longer ones eventually break.
Already bought a set yesterday morning
Sometimes I'll use a precision screwdriver tip that's less than 2mm as a makeshift pin removal tool. 2mm is the standard pin width.
On a side note, do you really intend on getting that kit? I would recommend no.
Too late. I bough the upgrade kit months ago. Why? Other than it makes transforming it a pain.
Yep, that, and it puts the backpack on upside down in bot mode. Also, the 3d print resolution is something you would expect from a home printer and not a more professional kit.
I see. Wish they never made it a parts former. Oh well, at least I still have those 3rd party legends firgures
