Mr. Pinball Tip:

When fixing my GTB Roller Disco, I undertook the enormous task of replacing the crimp pins. They are, unfortunately, a pain to remove. Being in Australia, Molex products are to come by and the remover tool that the Molex distributor sold didn't fit the pins! After trying numerous implements (skewers, thread pickers screwdrivers etc.) I found an old dissecting kit of my brother's. Inside was a metal probe (with a pointed tip.) It is about 6 inches long so fit snugly in the hand and the point was great for removing the pins.

Where do you find such a tool?

In Sydney, where I am, the local University Science department sells them for about US$1. The probe is also great for other pin related applications.
