Default Lapping?!

I've been reading up on lapping the heatsink, and I was curious if anyone here has tried that. If so, how much did it help lower your temperature by? I think my Athlon XP 2500+ is running a little hot, so would this be a good, cheap alternative?

My XP 2500+ is running at around 45-48 C idle and around 53-55 C under load. I have the stock AMD heatsink, so do you think lapping would considerably lower my temperatures?
