How do you remove and replace 3/16 Robart pin hinges and keep it clean?

easiest way I have found is to take a very hot soldering iron and melt out the center after you have cut the surface away. Best to cut out the metal part and dril a small pilot hole so you get it straight.

I assume the pin has been removed and the surfaces parted. I then sharpen a 3/16 brass tube, chuch it up in my drill and core it out like an apple. This has worked well for me in the past helping some friends.
