Work Gloves
« on: November 27, 2017, 06:49:48 PM »

Leather work gloves....who's wearing what? Its hard to find a good durable glove these days to cut and split firewood with. West Chester used to make a quality glove like their split cowhide double palm leather glove......

Now their junk and wear out real quick.

Any ideas for a comparable glove???

I use these, bought in bulk.  When the blue starts peeling off of the gloves, they go in the trash.  Less than $1/pair.

Maybe they don't do it in y'alls necks of the woods, but around here we can trade in a deer hide for a pair of buckskin gloves. Something through the DNR. Anyway those free gloves are my favorite of all time. Summertime I never wear gloves for any reason unless I'm working with copper, because I chew my nails and copper tastes terrible lol but for those instances I like to wear PUGS because they're paper thin and you hardly know they're there. Welding I put the thin Mustang or Tillman gloves on my left hand to hold the rod steady because I shake like a bastard. Cold weather is always those free buckskin ones

I like the rubber coated lined gloves as well when it's cold (Which is most of the time here).  When it's warm out I use the cheapo leather work gloves, but they wear out quick handling wood.

Showa Atlas 300 gloves for summer use, or Showa Atlas 451 Thermafit gloves for the winter.  Comfortable and wear like iron.  Much better than the Wells Lamont cowhide gloves that I had been using for years.

Thanks Jon and Paintballs but both too thin. Trying to keep my finger nails from turning purple. I'm looking for an uninsulated leather work glove comparable to the split cowhide double palm.

You don't like foam? It's no Michael J Fox shake but there's always a quiver in my right hand, been that way my whole life. Bout an inch swing on the tip of a 7018 if I try to weld one handed. Usually chip the flux off about 3" from the end for the stinger and wrap the tail of the rod down into my hand, keeps it a lot more steady

Yeah I know.

Used to put up a couple thousand bales of hay a day all summer long, didnít wear gloves then either. Unloaded a lot of hay in shorts as well if it was stupid hot.

Around here I'm seeing a lot if these cloth gloves with a rubbery grip on fingers and Palm. Why are these so popular? Seems the rubber would get cold easy.

Well, they do get cold.  I am finding that in sub-freezing temps, I am going back to the leather gloves.  However, the company that makes the gloves I use (Atlas) also makes a thermal glove that is supposed to be a lot warmer - probably an insulated knit glove with the same rubber coating.  I haven't tried them yet but I am going to get a pair or two and see how I like them during the winter.

What I like about the rubber coated gloves is that they are incredibly durable and cheap.  I cut, split and stacked all of next year's firewood, about six cords now, with a single pair of the Atlas Showa 300 gloves, and they are filthy dirty but show no apparent wear.  I normally would have holes in at least four fingers and split seams in a pair of my usual Wells Lamont leather gloves.  Plus the coated gloves fit my hands much better, and I find that I have pretty good finger/hand dexterity with the rubber coated gloves that I don't have with the leather ones.  They also grip tenaciously to splits of firewood, where the splits would just slide out of my grip with leather gloves on.

They're great for grip and dexterity.  Beyond that, if your hands get cold, hold them over the exhaust of your splitter/tractor/saw for a few seconds and the rubber gets hot for a while.

The fingertips go in mine first.   I find a poorly made loose fitting glove can make work more tiring.

Those knit rubber coated gloves might do well.  Last couple of years, i get some pain in my fingertips being out in harsh cold.

I saw a family member at Xmas and he had a pair of winter works gloves made by Give'r. Google it.  I plow through gloves all year round and have yet to find anything that will hold up and not wear through the finger tips.  I put his winter gloves on and wow was I impressed..  He's a construction guy who works outside. I am seriously thinking about giving these a try....
