Prepare a clean area for working on the dewar. Use clean paper towels to put the parts on, small paper cups are useful for storing the small screws and washers as you go along. I ususally work on the soldering table. Keep track of where all the pieces, screws and washers go. Also, when working near any of the electronics, wear a grounded wrist band for electrostatic protection. It goes without saying that the detector should be warm before opening the dewar.
