Filament stuck in printcore 1

A piece of ABS is stuck inside print core 1. It is broke off down inside of the print core where I can't reach it with tweezers or pliers to heat it and pull it out. I have tried to push it through with another piece of filament and that won't work either. Any other thoughts?

    Do you have access to a heat gun? That would soften the plastic enough to either push through or pull out. It sounds jammed just before it gets to the hot parts (How's THAT for tech speak?) and cannot be gotten too as it is. Too far in to get a good grip and not far enough to get soft and push through.

    Anything that can blow a tight column of heated air should do. Just have decent temp control.

    I have had this happen to me......so...dat is how I solved it :)
