Subject: [CR]cottered cranks question

I finally bought a Park cotter pin press for all my my bikes with Magistroni cranksets! I've read Sheldon Brown's excellent articles about removal and installation of cotter pins, but I still have one question: How tight should I press in the cotter pin? Is it possible to exert TOO MUCH pressure with the Park tool?

Thanks for any information.
