I've gotta tub of it but I'm in Tumwater. Thursday nights I teach in DuPont but that's the closest I get.

I know it's Thursday......no, I don't have it in my back pocket :bigsmile:

It's probably over at my shop. I'll check tomorrow

I've never had a failure using cheap silicone dielectric grease.

The problem with being on social media, is that you know too many people that you don't know.

Joy is not a feeling. It is a strength. Some people are stupid, that's all there is to it. (And sometimes that stupid person is me/you.) Sometimes you just have to let stupid people be stupid. Don't let stupid steal your joy.

Holding onto unforgiveness and resentment is like drinking poison and expecting that other person to die. Anger will eat you up.

Frredom without responsibility is chaos.

Maybe not Jefe, but they are 2 different animals designed for different purposes.

Good Plan. Costco is rationing TP and paper towels, and ran out within the first 40 minutes of opening today. Gonna be a lot of dirty butts out there.

Just use the paste on your butt. Then the crap won't stick...

:ROFLMAO: thanks scott, wasn't sure if I even bought a tube how long would it last or even if I would use it again first time trying this and not even sure it will work. maybe its time for another machine.

Yeah - the thermal paste is something you buy once.... use only a tiny amount of it, and then it just sits there..... it really is a lifetime supply. Don't know if it goes bad --- I'd be worried about it settling maybe.... sorta like gutter seal.

I had a manager back in the '90s once refer to it as "thermal spoo".

I'd never heard that before in my life, but I remembered it.

I know the old-school ArcticSilver will separate and change color after a decade or so.

You never know until you go look..... Roll the syringe every 2-3 years.
