Take it slow, so better to use a small hand saw. Junior Hacksaw or a coping

PS. The reason I'm asking now, vs. last time when I enthusiastically cut
open the IBM Simon hard-shell pack, is because this pack doesn't seem to
have much air gap between the case and the cells. Little room for error.
Whereas the Simon pack seemed to have more empty space.

Note to self -- break out Dremel, wear gloves/eye protection. :)
