Ok, that makes me feel better. Maybe the lubricant is for newbies that can't get the o-ring in without "nicking" it. Experienced people are better at getting the o-rings in correctly (they have had lots of practice). I am more used to getting wood joints to come together properly, than putting in o-rings.
