Can you explain how the tape functions in setting pins? That is a step that feels a bit tricky at times and I would like to hear a trick or tip related to it.
Set the roll of tape flat on the bench making a ring of support with a hole in the middle. Place your gun on top of the roll of tape centering the pin to be removed in the hole of the tape. Hammer out pin.

The tape acts as a support on all sides of the pin being removed allowing you to drive pins out with great efficiency and ease, while still being soft on the frame or slide of the gun.

When setting pins in place, you can just use the flat bench with no support because you don't need the recess for the pin to fall as it is removed. Hope that all made sense.
