Does anyone know how to efficiently remove the pin shown (marked with red arrow) in the image attachment below? You can find these pins fitted into the mounting studs of most lightstands and booms. Both the pin and stud are apparently made of brass.

The pin itself is unimportant, so I don't really care if it's destroyed during removal. However, I certainly don't want to damage the stud or the lightstand this pin is attached to.

Thanks for your kind assistance.

Never mind. I finally got it done. I had four of these pins to remove. Two came out quite easily with just some light tapping with a punch, but the other two were an absolute nightmare. Nothing I tried budged these two pins, leading me to post this thread. Drilling was always an option, but I dreaded the notion of potentially damaging the studs. I later discovered these two pins (along with associated studs) were glued into place, with some incredibly tough glue. In the end, I simply gave up and worked with the other two.
