USING A DRIFT PUNCH
The removal of a pin from a shaft is only
one of many uses for a drift punch.
WEAR EYE PROTECTION.
1 Select a punch which is slightly smaller than the pin
which is to be removed. Care must be taken when
selecting a punch for removing a split pin. If the
punch is too small, it may become lodged in the pin.
3 Catch the pin before it falls out of the Shaft. When
the pin is about half way out of the shaft, you can let
go of the punch.
2 Hold punch (1) centered over pin (2). Tap punch
lightly with hammer (3). This should move the pin. It
may be necessary to apply penetrating oil to the pin
before it will move.
