Two pictures below — Boards are midgrade without the pins


Pins attached to boards use wire snips. Snip the plastic between the pins. Then Use a nail cutter to remove the pins from the board.

I wouldn’t (and don’t) worry about the tiny bits of leftover plastic after that. Chris is going to downgrade you a few cents a pound; if at all.
