Remove the door hinges pin with chisel

Set the chisel on a workbench, with the sharp end hanging down. Hold it firmly with one hand. With the other hand, repeatedly run your belt sander forward of the chisel end. Turn the chisel and repeat, until the edge is somewhat sharp.

Open the door halfway. Place wooden wedges under it, in the center. Duplicate the wedges so they are firmly stuck in the door and held in place.

Hold the sharp chisel edge to the center hinge pin. The chisel should be below the bolt head, pointing up at approximately 45 degrees, with the point of the chisel pressing into the joint just below the head.

TAP at the back of the chisel with a hammer, raising the hinge from the hinge cover.

Grab the top of the hinge pin once more than halfway out and pull it out the rest of the way.
