Tub Drain Broke


I have a tub that is leaking. I believe but am not 100% sure that it is the drain leaking from outside perimeter where the plumbers putty is. I bought a new drain and tried to unscrew the old one but the crosstabs broke while unscrewing. What do I do now? How do I get that old drain out?

Thanks,

Mike

Take the hack saw or sawall and cut vertical notch in water ever is left in the try not to cut all the way through, then get hammer and a flathead screwdriver, and use the notch as a brace for the flathead and slowly hammer it to get the piece to unthread, but be gentle.
