You're welcome. Keep in mind that if you have Revos or other Pure Fishing reels, the pin is one directional.

Okay thanks, I see that one end is tapered. Does it take much force to pop it out?

Usually not too much, but I have had a few that I thought the pliers would break before it budged. I have seen similar tools made from vice grips which have a curved jaw and longer handles, but this usually does the trick.

One more thing, be sure to support the spool shaft when you tap the pin through. If you bend the shaft or flatten the spool....$$.

I've made 2 sets of pliers. The first set broke trying to remove the pin from a Revo STX,

RussBert, want to make up a few of those and sell them? I'd happily buy a pair that you make. I know you could sell the rest, too.
