I assume you have one that is broken off relatively flush with the nock insert, right? If it's any of the push in uni-nock types there is a very easy solution. Just drill a small hole down through the middle and run a little screw into the hole. Grab the screw with a pair pliers and pull. Works pretty well most of the time.

i take a pair of nocking pliars and carefully break off the nocks. i assume that you glued them on? then take some sandpaper and remove any minute pieces of plastic. use some rubbing alcohol on the nock end of the arrow then replace the nock. piece of cake.

nock it to your string and align the flight so it will pass thru your arrow rest.

All you should have to do is rotate the nock to where it needs to be for your set-up. Youshouldn't need any special tools or anything.

Hate to ask this late, but the arrows are aluminum, right? What style of nocks? Uni-nocks or glue on?

Uni-nocks you remove the same way as in a carbon arrow. Glue-on nocks I always took a knife and split them in the throat and down the side and just peeled them off. Lightly scrape off any residue and glue a new one on. Turn it to align the fletching for rest clearance and spin the arrow to look for any wobble. Don't use any type of super=glue as it destroys nocks.
