    DW-5600E / DW-5750 crystal replacement (how to separate crystal from case)

    I opened up my DW-5750 today and noticed that the crystal appears to be permanently bonded to the case, sandwiched from the back by a stamped metal component.

    Is the metal part removable?

    Is it true that the crystal cannot be separated from the case without breaking it?

    I learned how to from the forum and did a couple crystal swap mods. Never break/scratch any crystal. For your case, the metal part should not be removed. You might need a spare adhesive tape. Sometime it is reusable sometime it's not. Basically, I just made a die and push the crystal out

    Thanks for the links and tips! I made a basic die from some soft wood and it popped out with no trouble.

    A soft plastic like HDPE would make an excellent die, but I don’t see any scratches from using a bit of wood, sanded smooth with 400-grit.
