Default Northern Tool compact bender question

So I received a used Northern Tool compact bender from a friend. It was missing some parts. The right angle been tool has me a little confused. All of the dies have holes that are large enough for 5/8" hitch pins, but the right angle tool has a hole that is only large enough for a 1/2" pin. I see in some of the videos the right angle tool has a large hole made for a 5/8" pin. If anyone has one of these can they verify if the whole is supposed to be for a 5/8" pin or not?

Here's a screen grab from a video with someone holding the right angle tool that clearly has a larger hole size than mine.

Should I drill it out or not?

Perfect, thanks. That's what I was thinking. Not sure if this is from a smaller unit or what, but I'm gonna drill it out.
