I don’t know what some of the terminology you are using means, but I’m assuming that these nails are very thin and protrude significatly through the back (hence the bending). I had some luck nailing them out from the back by doing the following. I got a small pair of vise grips and really clamped them on the protruding piece of the nail (leaving about a 2 mm gap between where I clamped and the board). Then I could tap on the vice grips instead of the point of the nail. this would let me be sure the nail would be forced stright out. Just an idea.
