Default Cleaning or Replacing Thermometer in Wagner Dutch Oven?

Hi folks,

I've been scratching my head about this one for a while. Bought this beautiful unmarked (Wagner?) hammered dutch oven a while back and have been trying to decide what to do with the crudded-up aluminum thermometer in the lid. Does anyone have a technique for removing it so it could be cleaned, or a suitable replacement if removed?

The thermometer seems to be made of two aluminum parts that screw together so that one flange is on top of the lid and the other below, with the round glass disk sandwiched between. I could try to fill the joint full of penetrating oil and unscrew it, but the aluminum body seems so fragile that I'd likely only destroy it without a good non-marring means of getting hold of it.

Any ideas? I've seen a few of these out there, maybe one of you has come up with a solution.
