Recommended, right on the package arctic silver comes in, is to put on a vinyl 
throwaway glove, put a dab about the size of a book match head on the end of 
the finger, and spread it as thin as it will go.  Basically you want the 
color to be uniform but you should be able to see some of the printing 
through it.  If you put enough on it to squeeze out when you pull down the 
clamps, that's too much, it should be no thicker than the size of the 
colloidal silver particles in the silicone grease medium for best heat 
transfer.  I haven't tried it, but I'd guess we're not talking about more 
than .0001" of it.  That is one ten thousandth of an inch.  And I don't 
believe my 0-1" micrometer could reliably measure the difference between 
clean anvils and one anvil with the right coating on it.

Cheers, Gene
