I just dragged my bosch gks 190 circular saw off my 6'mobile scaffolding tower by catching the lead with my foot, doh! Luckily ish...it landed on the corner of the base plate & bent that all out of shape. I've purchased a new base plate but there's a strange hollow pin holding it in place @ the front...does anyone know how to remove one of these?

I don't know that particular tool, but "strange hollow pin" sounds like a roll pin. These are a bit of springy steel, rolled up into a cylinder, so that they make a tight fit into a suitable hole. There is normally a gap between the ends to give a bit of leeway.

See Spring pin - Wikipedia


So it's designed to be easily knocked in or driven out with a flat ended punch of matching diameter. Probably worth using a new one to refit but can be reused. Easily available in small batches on eBay etc.
