    According to one of Bangter's methods of removing the trundles, is to drill the holes in the top shroud...Where do I find drill bits that small...these Trundles are very, very thin...!!

    It's a very slight widening and tapering of the outermost surface of bushings. It just prevents the arbor from interfering with the pivot's fit in the bushing. It can apply to any operation that smooths the surface of a hole.

    That's what I thought...would that be the same as securing the trundles in the upper shroud of a lantern pinion after having drilled the tops to remove the trundles and replace them...??
    2nd question.....Where do I find drill bits that small...these trundles are very, very thin...!!

    You can usually push them out with a little pressure. Personally, I like removing the trundle cap and replacing them that way, but I'm in the minority around here :D

    Yeah there are no holes at the top of the shroud...I'd have to drill a completely new hole...I think I'm gonna give removing the top shroud a try....

    A crows foot works great for that. Brace the cap on it and tap the arbor downward with a hollow punch to protect the pivot. Be sure to keep the punch straight up and down ;) Getting it back on requires patience. You have to wiggle the trundles into place like putting wheels in a movement :)
