How the heck do you get in to work on a WV-97A?

I’m also working on some Heathkit VTVMs – an IM-11, IM-13, and an IM-28. For these, it was easy to drop everything from the front panel and thus gain access to the range and function switches and their associated components.

But on the WV-97A, I had to start desoldering connections just to get the range switch disengaged from the front panel. I still can’t reach most of the components. What’s the secret to working on these?

Update: Well, I had thought the chassis was spot-welded to the front panel, but as soon as I removed the control nuts for the DC Zero and Ohms Adjust, the chassis dropped away. :oops:

when faced with insurmountable or inscrutable situations in accessing old equipment's innards, I always reach for the sawzall or 16lb sledge...........in a pinch, a plasma cutter will do :-D
