I sacrificed an old monkey wrench, by grinding a slight angle on the jaws, which can then also be padded with a strip of copper, or other soft metal. Be sure to grip the receiver SOLIDLY in a LARGE padded vise. To avoid scratches or deformation, everything needs to be rock solid, so that the only part that can move is the screw itself.

Since you are removing a broken one, you don't care about getting it out, and for the reinstall, you will be able to clean and lube the threads, so it should go pretty easy.
