years ago i had a bad skin problem that the doctor thought was caused by flux, my hands were allergic to the flux, or copper he thought. so i wore jersey gloves for a few years.

but now everything is fine, i have small hands so i had to get ladies size gloves as those were the only ones that came in small size.

of course they were purple or blue or whatever color that ladies love, caught hell for it, but my hands felt great

* no jokes about having small hands *

lets be adults here LOL

that means you house plumber

I use my blue rubber gloves, just have to move super fast wiping the joints.

The rubber won't melt, but that heat can burn you if you don't move fast enough.

I have small hands as well. When ever I find some good cotton gloves first thing I do is take them all and wash in hot water and shrink themas much as I can.

I worked with a guy who lost his finger using a threaded. Wasn't pretty I'll tell you that much.

Never got into the habit of wearing gloves, but I'm trying to change. I like the Mechanix type gloves when I'm doing grunt work, but for soldering and fine work, can't wear anything, feels wierd.
I have however melted the $hit out of a few pairs of those Mechanix gloves. Stick to leather if your grinding!

Signed, Hamburger Hands

There's a freight salvage place I hit in S. L. Ut. that has %100 cotton gloves at .50 a pair. My back-ups have back-ups.
