5A chop saw is admittedly not a tool of finesse, and it did a fair job of mangling this unfortunate differential capacitance cell. A bandsaw was tried at first, but made virtually no progress in cutting the hard stainless steel of the capsule assembly. The chop saw’s abrasive wheel created a lot of heat, discoloring the metal and turning the silicone fill fluid into a crystalline mass which had to be carefully chipped out by hand using an ice pick so as to not damage the thin metal sensing diaphragm. Keep these labors in mind, dear reader, as you enjoy this textbook!
