If you search the internet, you should come across a design by Warren S. 
It's basically the same type of oven controller that is used in the 
internal oven for that oscillator.

I did a surface mount version of his design a while back. I've been 
running it for quite a while now. IMO it is helping to reduce the 
thermal drift of the oscillator.

Bob has pointed out in the past that the outer oven was not intended to 
be active all of the time. This is probably true. That said it seems to 
help in my setup.

If you are unable to find the documentation, please let me know. I can 
try to dig it up when I get home.
