[DPRG] Broken tap

While working on this project for SMU, I broke a 4-40 tap while
tapping a hole in 1/4" Al plate.  What is the easiest way to get the
remaining part of the tap out of the hole?  I can't easily get to the
underside of the plate (but I probably could if I have to), and there
isn't enough of the tap sticking up out of the plate to grab with
pliers.
