In addition, the durable design means that there is no need to place typically fragile seams where they could be damaged by heat-- I've had the same trouble with all the other brands of TIG gloves I've In other words, the gloves have outlasted their competitors by a wide margin. Second of all, these gloves are the most comfortable I've ever worn. This glove is durable, but it is built of thin and supple leather to allow for a great "touch" when handling filler rod and the torches. Only downside to this glove is that, because of its tight fit, it takes a few extra seconds to put on. However, for a glove that feels this good and last as long as this one, that is a small price to pay.
I got these gloves for 18 bucks, and they are excellent. It is well fitted and has excellent dexterity, as well as good heat protection. Since 3 months I've been using 18 gauge SS TIG, mostly 80-100 Def for a few hours a week. There are 120 amps of power. Grinding and handling of sharp parts require the use of this tool. The price is so affordable, you can't beat it for 18 bucks. It's durable, dexterous, and protects well. During the week last week, I developed a hole in my thumb, so I purchased a new pair of gloves. Eventually I could see running through a pair each month if I were a professional, but for what it costs, I think it's an acceptable The second time I bought.
The thread on the thumb and index finger of a normal work glove is melted by sparks from the grinder after about a week. These are the best needle for kevlar thread I have ever used. The thread is still intact after more than a month, and I am not having any trouble manipulating tools during measurements and layouts. I have never owned a glove that was more comfortable than this. Although I cut the velcro strap as soon as I got them, I did leave them in a state of discomfort. Mechanix gloves go through the same process as well. There must be some reason why glove makers think those are good ideas. As I am constantly putting on and taking off my gloves, I do not have time to deal with velcro. Despite the fact that it was easy enough to solve and I was aware of it when I ordered the items, I haven't deducted any stars.
That's not a great reason to buy them, but they're still great. I'm okay with these. A woman with long fingers and thin hands, I have a small wrist and a thin hand. I like how they fit. As far as I can tell, they aren't mediums. Would you mind if I asked about We aren't sure what the standard is for gloves in terms of sizing, or if there is one. In terms of heat protection, they do nothing. There is no meaning to it. There's no mention of this in the description either way, but these gloves show up when you do a It's possible to touch something really quickly and keep yourself from getting burned, but I'm not able to pick anything up hot. Though I had to take a chance on them because it didn't specify a safe handling temperature, I can't really take any stars off for that. I will get some use out of them one way or another though, so they are well made.
I found my weld to be significantly improved by the increased dexterity allowed in the rod hand. I also like how the fit is so good.
I just use my Lincoln gloves to hold my torch as it gets hot. I have a high degree of dexterity and rod control and can hold my rod hand far enough from the arc so that it does not get hot while I am.
I admit you may argue that point, but I urge you to try it first. It does not have wrist protection, but I don't need it, since I already know not to touch hot surfaces with my hands. I love the quality of this comforter, and it's very heat-resistant. I am able to move much more freely, and I have a better sense of touch, which enables me to control my fillers better.
My job is to fabricate stainless steel parts all day long in a job shop. Although these gloves are incredibly thin, I thought that their thinness would be great for getting a good feel on my filler metal, and I was pleasantly surprised to find out how well they hold up while handling metal parts which are often still rubbed with sharp burrs. Furthermore, they are effective at insulating against the.
It's great to be able to TIG with great dexterity. Medium fits me perfectly even though I'm 6'1ft and weigh 230 lbs. My hands are average size (never wore anything bigger than a large). This is NOT a durable glove that can be used as a work glove (or for handling heated objects). As I already use a miller mig glove on my torch hand, I don't see any difference.
