Thanks Ed,

I think the rubber sheet on mine is against metal.  I haven't yet seen the
glass dewar.

The adhesion is huge.

Do you know if the holes opposite the 2N3792 are threaded?   If they are, I
might try running the screws out and using those holes with longer screws
as my pull points.    I can't pull on the lugs hard enough -- I've tried.
