Rookie Mistake! Options?

Total fail today. Was following Ristows very written Carb rebuild thread. Had a total failure.. Everything was going great, feeling good about myself until I over tightened one of the idle mix screws. Pushed it right into cylinder and cracked main body.. On a time and $ stand point very frustrating.. Oh well I did learn a bunch. So what now? Do I buy rebuilt Motorcraft 2150 off Rock Auto?, Find a 4barell over the 2? Or just scrap the carb idea and save for an EFI?
I really wanted to learn more about carb operations before I went EFI..
I have a rebuilt 360 ready to go. Also rebuilding trans. See how that goes!!

Anybody have an old carb body they want to sell me?
