[time-nuts] Opening an Isotemp OCXO

I bought an Isotemp OCXO82-59 with a frequency of 10 MHz for a $3 at the 
MIT flea market.
As expected it was dead.   It heats up as expected but looking at the 
output with a scope there
is nothing.   However looking at the output with a spectrum analyzer I 
can see a faint 10 MHz
signal.   It seems that the oscillator is running but the output 
circuitry is dead.   Reasonable

Anyway, has anyone had any luck unsoldering the tin case without 
destroying it?
