    I agree with John TenEyck. If you try to sink them deeper, you are likely to create larger and more conspicuous dents. By the time you finish the piece, the pins will be hard to see anyway.

    It looks to me like you are dealing with custom parts for which there is no manufactured source. If that is true, could you possibly have them made by someone with a 3-D printer?

    I remember when there was no such thing as a thin kerf blade and it was a long time after the 1940's when your saw was designed. If full kerf blades worked well then, they should still work well. On...
