: You'll need a pin punch of the correct size. They're similar to nail sets,
: but of more exacting standards. A decent set isn't that expensive.
Yup. That was it. Got a set and it did the trick. Thanks!
Maybe it should be obvious, but I don't know what this roll pin is part of.
If I was able to do so without damaging something else, I'd put a propane
torch on it to see if some heat loosens things up.
Roll pins are like sheets of hardened steel rolled into a cylinder
with no closure where they (nearly) meet. Normal applications for roll
pins are to insert them in holes that are somewhat smaller than their
nominal diameter. They then bear against the hole in which they are
applied by (very stiff) spring action.
The Tennesse smoke wrench, therefore, would be useless, because there
is nothing to "loosen," in the conventional sense.

Just thought I'd mention that while it's rare, some roll pins are
tapered and must be driven out from the small end since the hole is
Figured the OP might need to know about this, since roll pins dont
normally give a lot of problems, if the correct sized drift is used.
