Snapped slow speed jet in side of Tecumseh carb.

Well today I was going to rebuild a carb of a Tecumseh engine . The carb is very weathered. I removed the bowl with no problem. When I started to remove the slow speed jet on the side it was really frozen. I gave it a little more pressure with my wrist and SNAP ! I snapped the head off the jet. Now the jet is stuck in the side of the carb. Any tips on how I can get it out ?? Thanks in advance.

Best bet would be to buy another carb. I doubt you'll ever get it out without messing up the carb, and it would take more time and effort than a new one's worth.
