Re: 2235 stuck cover

Sometimes the cans can be a tight fit on the chassis. This can be aggravated by any dents, dings, grit, or corrosion that can make the Al surfaces gall and bind up. Once you are sure all the fasteners are removed, you can apply gentle brute force by placing the scope upright with its back end resting on a piece of carpeting or towels on the floor, and pushing the can downward. Hold the handle knobs on the sides to apply the force. Some rocking and twisting should help to slightly deform the whole thing, breaking any surface bonds.
