Thanks, Corby!
Followed your advice, and made a 15x2mm screwdriver by grinding down a
carbon steel scraper. A combination of 10min heating on the physical
package, plus the tool and got the rubidium bulb out.
I've had these oscillators running since 8:00 in the morning, doing a
simple XY signal tracing comparing both. The older unit loses lock
semi-periodically, and then relocks after a random time from 4 to 10
minutes. The newer unit hasn't lost lock, but there may be an issue with
the sma connector.
