Short of buying some more tools... and who doesn't like to do that there's only one way I know of to get a broken pipe nipple out. First, coat a hacksaw blade with grease, and put a piece of rag, also with a bit of grease on it, in the back of the hole to catch anything not caught on the blade. Then all you need to do is saw a kerf through one side of the fitting. From there take a cape chisel and bend the sides of the fitting toward the middle. Once folded in it should come right out. If it doesn't then make a cut 180 degrees from the first and then it should come out....never had one that didn't unless it was rusted in tight, and those just took a little longer. Good luck.

NCWayne: I have taken them out that way too. The trouble is that you damage the threads some when you do them that way. I am worried that since this is air and right on the compressor main high pressure line that it will leak.
