Alas, the sockets that terminate the cord at the heater are locked into a piece of black plastic, and require a specific tool to remove gracefully. And of course I don't have the tool. Decidedly ungraceful attempts were made, ending in frustration.  A little research turned up this:

I don't have a full list handy, but there's a circuit-board-holding Panavise head, a UV eraser (does anybody do that anymore?), bundles of wire-wrapping wire, a nice breadboard with banana jacks, and a bunch of other stuff. I wanted to offer it up to folks who might want it before trashing whatever's left.

I don't know about Weller extraction tools, but bring it by
Noisebridge: I can arrange to be around to field an awesome-sounding
electronics-lab donation and perform an extraction, email me off list.
