I'm having a hard time explaining the part I'm talking about because I dont
know the real name of any of the parts. I dont mean the needle itself. I
mean the little metal shaft that the needle gets pried off of. This pin has
a little spiral spring attached to it which prevents me from sliding the
casing over the pin.
