I did something alike few years back when I saw yours on a tutorial, but I cut mine different, the idea is the same I just found this worked better for me

On older spinners, there's sometimes a cross-pin that holds either the spool or the click gear, on the spool shaft.
Right, usually on push button release spools. There is rarely a reason to remove those (I've never needed to). They are pretty easy to get at too. I'm thinking if there is a need to make a special tool to remove/install these pins, there must be a part that is serviced regularly that has a pin the needs to be removed on something other than a spinning reel.

Got it, beyond lubing and cleaning, I have never had an issue with a spinning reel. I don't have too many Spinners for the salt. Most of them are new or nearly new, and I keep up on them.

The vice grips aren't for spinning reels. See the picture a few posts up for what it is for on conventional reels.
