Default 1931 Mod. A door hinge pin removal.

I feel that I have tried everything to remove the last hinge pin from my 1931 late model pick up door. I have heated the hinge, soaked it with rust remover and borrowed a hinge pin removal tool. All to no avail. Perhaps there is a problem with the tool? The two bolts that apply pressure have square heads that seem to press into the washers perhaps causing friction that I cannot overcome? (Maybe a defective tool?). I feel like the next thing is to drill it out, but I am concerned I won’t drill it straight and I will damage the hinge. Maybe I could take it to a machine shops that would have a hydraulic press? Ideas? Thanks in advance for any input from anyone who has dealt with this problem. The other five came out with out too much fight.

Look at my post from a few weeks back, a very good method to remove pins, has worked for me several times.
