Angry Broken Stud

Last night I was swapping out the hardware for better quality hardware and one of the front mounting studs broke off flush with the motor. I had an easyout so I drilled the pilot hole an lightly tapped the extractor into the hole. As soon as I started to turn the extractor, the tip broke off in the original stud! How I have a stuck stud with a hardened steel piece in the middle.

Looks like I need to find a machine shop...
