I got the new hardware today and changed the tailpiece and chinrest, but while I was working on those I tried to remove the endpin. It wouldn't budge I tried prying it out, but just chipped  the pin.. Any ideas beside leaving the ebony pin in?

At our workshop we use this tool:

We have several different models but this one is fine. We have a piece of leather glued on the end to avoid scratching the bottom of the end-button.

I don't know where else you can find it but it shouldn't be too difficult.
