Something curious happened this weekend. One of my field-tips broke inside the shaft. The actual point and the thread of the tip got separated. The problem is that the thread is stilled screwed in the insert and I have a hit insert which means there is everything inside of the shaft (nothing to grab). Commonly I would heat the shaft and pull the insert out with a screwed in tip. The broken thread blocks the point of being screwed in of course.
Is there an easy way to get the insert out of the shaft?
