I get similar ones from Uline.
I’m not sure of the cost, but there cheap and last a few weeks. They’re Better then disposable and can be washed.

These gloves are the best I’ve worn. I used to buy the Harbor Freight ones for $2.99 a pair, these are $5.99 at Home Depot and last 2-3 times longer. Bonus is the thumb doesn’t stick out an extra 1/2” like the Harbor Freight ones do. What general purpose gloves are you guys wearing?

Maxiflex is the best out there. I like their green ones that are cut rated. It's saved my hands from plumbers strap and aluminum many times.

I wear grease monkey disposable nitrile gloves when out on auger calls. Other than that I don't wear any.
Right there with ya! Rubbers for drain cleaning along with leathers or ugly gloves. The only time I wear rubbers for plumbing is if it’s a nasty job, other than that, no gloves. My hands always have some sort of cut or burn. Been that way all my life.

I wear tsunami grip 500g xl. They are as far as I can tell the exact same as the maxiflex ones but cheaper. I wear them for a while and throw them out when they get too crusty from glue. Seriously if you like MaxiFlex then try these out as they are about 1/2 price but just as good in my opinion.

Those MaxiFlex gloves are the absolute best gloves I’ve ever worn for work. Many others look similar but are definitely not the same fit and quality. Have you ever run them through the washing machine? They come out almost like new again. I usually wash them 3 or 4 times until they get holes in them and then I toss em.

Yup, mine almost always have some sort of cut too. I doesn't bother me. The wife gets kind of pissed off when a cut splits open at night and I leak all over the bedding.

Lol! I hear you there! That’s why we can’t have nice sheets. Or at a restaurant when you unconsciously scratch a cut that itches and it starts bleeding again. That’s always awkward....
