Just tap it in with a small hammer or mallet till it stops. It's there
to add stiffness and prevent the table from flexing fore and aft
because of the blade slot. When you need to change the blade just pull
it out with pliers.
Geez Louise, tapping a tapered pin into a tapered hole in cast iron is
looking for a broken table! I push my pin with thumb until it snugs. To
remove use fingers. PLIERS??? In in a machine shop where I worked, that
was a firing offense.....as a matter of fact, putting any adjustable wrench
on a machine part was absolutely prohibited. While I am on the subject,
leaving the chuck key in a drill press lathe or milling machine chuck
...even for a moment was grounds for dismissal.

Not that it matters but......I think I learned some very important lessons
in that shop. Two that come to mind are to respect the machinery and that
safety in the shop is serious business.
