You could just replace the headphone jack on the iPod.

Just weld a piece of metal on the end of the headphone and then pull it

Not a good answer to a 3 year old question. Besides being an old question, it also states that it broke off inside the jack not a chance that you can solder to it.

Yes you can replace the headphone jack but its one piece together with the hold switch. And this iPod model is quite hard to open. See here: iPod Classic Headphone Jack & Hold Switch Replacement
