Great video! Now you need to make the MacGyver version -- in a dark pub with no stove and no tools while drunk. :-)
26's so far this year: I've already lost count. :-)

I find heating the screwdriver & pushing into the broken plastic stem to make a slot similar to a wood screw head slot,remove & cool screwdriver tip, leave a couple of minutes for the plastic to cool & re harden, refit screwdriver in slot, & unscrew as per wood/set screw.

TIP: Do not press a screwdriver deep, that would expand the nylon and make it harder to get the broken stem out.
may all the doubles be with you

As I have played many soft tips I often had to remove broken points from the barrels. There were much more broken points than broken shafts. The ideal tool for doing it was a (really sharp) can opener on my swiss knife. Folks knew I always had one in my pocket so when anyone needed they usually asked me for help. No heating needed...

I believe it was a better tool than using the steel tip point itself but thinking about it now, having it happened while playing steel tips, the first idea would be using the first sharp thing you can get therefore the sharp point of the other dart might've come to mind probably. However, once you have tried the can opener there's no reason changing this way even if I had broken a shaft while playng steel tips (which I do 90% of my time).

BTW, I also believe there's more swiss knives among players than those original darts tools...

Is that not what I just done in the video?

yes good point although I never push it in too far, just enough so I can turn it.

Basically that's what the proper tools are as shown in the video, just sharp blades.
