I feel your pain. I just replaced the lower one again. Took close to a couple of hours. The upper one, not so bad. I recently purchased a higher strength grade roll pin, actually 20 of them online. Well see if it makes a difference. Id guess that I have performed this repair at least 10 times in the last 2 years also trying a bolt that broke after a couple of trys. Didnt realize I could find a stronger bolt.

Slide pin

good morning
I have not fixed mine yet but am going to fix it in the sprig
I have put a standard pin in right now but am going to put a stainless one in the spring
I have had this issue with tapping holders that have pins in them that I design in the past I am going to order stainless ones in a few weeks
They are 3 times stronger but still will shear
If you want to e mail me and follow up I can send you some when I get them in
Its not on my plate right now but will be
there is also three different style one like the one in single roll double and triple. also there is different levels of hardness
I am going to look into these
The stainless ones are about 5 dollars each compare to the .50 cheap ones
Also the cheap are made in china soft steel and not the same through

I did once use a grade 8 bolt instead of a regular bolt or roller pin. It didn't break or shear, but teeth broke on the brass gear. But not only that, the grade 8 bolt distorted or"stretched" the 1/4" hole thru the shaft. The distorted shaft inside the bore or the brass gear made it very difficult to remove the gear from the staft to replace it. I had the drive it off with a hammer and also replace the shaft. Gear unit has too much power and can break pins or other parts when reaches end stops. Recommend position micro switches wired in series with bedroom slide panel switch.
