How to open an OCXO?

(1/9) > >>

Hey guys,

I'm trying to open an OCXO and I have very little success. I even tried heating it up with hot air and then using a desoldering station to suck up the solder, but it just wouldn't melt properly.

Tried adding more solder, heating it up + desoldering gun - no success either.

Any suggestions? I'd like to stay away from the oven so I preserve the sticker on the front.

Thanks.

We need to see a picture before we can give you any reasonable suggestions.  Of course, if you want unreasonable ideas .......  :)

Use an axe.

It's possible that it's been laser welded, or soldered with a high temperature solder, or is just too big a heatsink for your hot air gun, therefore the only sensible solution is an axe.
