Default Broken barbs!!! RAWR!!!!!!

I was taking apart my timmy the other day, and the barb that goes into the front block snapped off. Half of it is still in there.

Any suggestions to take this out?

yep.. Use a drill bit one size smaller then the size of the hole, Use a drill press to drill a hole through the barb (be sure not to hurt the threads) then just use a easy out. or if you are good like me you would have destroyed the barb without hurtting the threads.

I broke a barb off in my ram sleeve and used a jeweler's screw driver to get it out.
