I had a similar problem recently and was able to get the cable head out by pushing from the opposite side (through the hole where what was left of the cable was). I used a tiny Torx driver, a size used to work on cell phones You could use a small hex key, jewelers screwdriver, etc.

Anyone have an easy solution (or given my current state of four of them in this condition, I will accept a difficult solution) for NR shifters that have the head of the cable stuck in them. The head won't budge; no place t o get a bite on the head. My latest attempt was to drill it with a dremmel and very thin drill bit, only to have two of the bits break.

Thanks for the help and for giving me something to think about while traveling to Trexlertown tomorrow.
