Brass Fitting Broke Flush on Air Compressor


Using my air compressor the other day and a ladder fell on the output brass fitting that the air hose was hooked up to. Needless to say the fitting broke flush with the output on the regulator and I am wondering if there is a way to get the broken piece out. I cannot grab it with a pliers.

I will check locally here and see if I can find one instead of ordering online. Thank you very much for the idea!
