Suitable Gloves

Postby James's old man » 06 Oct 2019, 19:19

Looking for some advice, I always get splinters in my hands, however today I have a whopper in my thumb and think it could be time to consider wearing gloves.

What if any type of gloves do you wear?

Thanks in advance.

While I've been working on the frame and roof for my verandah, and especially while I've been using the OSB, I use the red gloves from SFix.

I think thy were on offer at the counter at £1.99. At that price, I bought several pairs and as any rips occur, I binned them and used a new pair.

They certainly stopped the OSB splinters.

Yesterday I was rough grinding the shaping on one of my barstool seats using the 5 tooth tct Ax cutter that drops into an angle grinder. It's a really vicious bit of kit and wearing heavy duty leather gardening gloves is mandatory or else your hands will feel as if they've been sand blasted :shock: - Rob

Thanks for the advice all, sorted myself out with a make and type that fits most your specs, those hands should be safer now.

However after visiting A & E today, and seeing the plastics team tomorrow, this latest splinter (or skelf) has been a painful experience to be sure!!

Gloves on always now..... ;)
