Dishing pins for circular stretcher roll

Could someone post a picture of dishing pins for a circular saw stretcher rolls. I'm trying to explain how they look like and how they work to someone - a picture is worth a thousand words for this.

I've seen several versions, but mainly the the pins are attached to a horseshoe plate that goes around the bottom roll. The pins are adjustable to be higher than the bottom roll. Sometimes the pins have roller-balls on top.

For those not familiar with dishing pins, they are used to quickly remove a dish from a saw, or a section of a saw. Much easier on the plate and arms than pounding it out with a hammer.
