Removing Piston Pin Difficult?

Before I attempt it...want to remove piston from Magnum two speed crankshaft. Engine still on frame. Manual makes it look simple: Push nifty shop tool in and the pin slides out other side (after removing clips. I know that much.) But does it really come out that simply? Without that tool, what should I use and will it slide out readily or do I need to pound? The only time I have seen it done was on a Honda and the guy pounded the pin out with a hammer and nail punch. Worked, but seemed primitive. Would a wooden dowel work? With or without pounding? Really don't want to bend crankshaft!!!
