I am attaching a photo of this drill I intend to dismantle and clean. I am baffled by the handle: there are 2 symmetrical pins on the shaft of the handle, visible hopefully in the photo, which I assume ought to be pulled out in order to detach the wheel. The pins seem to be almost flush to the surface though. Before messing around with it I thought of asking for expert advice on this forum. Thank you in advance.

Sometimes, often actually, things are put in with tapered
pins. The taper can be subtle, so measure the end
and using a drift, pound out the pin from the smaller
end.

I use a set of pin punches I got at harbor freight.

Thank you for pointing me in the right direction Loren.
Never used pin punches before, and in addition, the ends of the pin are really battered and distorted, so I expect a few hours of punching and guessing. Maybe some liquid wrench overnight would help?

Your site is impressive and instructive, by the way, i will look closely and learn more in the days ahead.

You may want to do something like cut the end off
an old round-shaft screwdriver or some odd old
thing to make a drift. I use my punches but
I got by for years with ground off nail sets and
things like that.

yeah, Liquid Wrench is good. I usually try to whack
it dry first. Once a pin moves a little it will pop
out easily if it’s a tapered pin.
