If I did my LN2/DICE sessions in big blocks I wouldn't grease the socket, but I can only bench in little spurts througout the week.
I started doing it after trying to fire up my commando once without realizing the socket pins were swimming in water.
With this method, I can bench on and off for weeks without having to break things down.
I also still get a little Tom Sawyerish joy from intentionally squirting stuff into the socket. It seems so taboo.......
true! However, I don't bench that often.
