I'm constantly having to work on raceways and j-boxes,that I fear. I turned off power one time and got a complaint from three other trades. The problem I fear is that a lot of times folks aren't making mechanical joints on solid THHN connections. In the event other trades are working around and moving the MC cables, a connection is likely to separate placing either a current carrying conducter or nuetral along side of a j-box. Does anyone know of a low voltage 50v/600v
pair of gloves.

Yes Last i new they were called metermen gloves . Back in the mid to late 1960 to 1970 i made taps on many 500 MCM / Kcmil on 480 ungrounded delta & 250 D.C. Rember the standards today have changed because of osha regs. & libility if you can do the work with power of you must to make a long story short Kohli

We use Salisbury Class "0" gloves with leather protectors for all work 600v & below & Class "2" gloves with leather protectors & rubber sleeves for all 7,970/13,800Y voltage primary work. The rubber gloves should be tested daily, by inflating them & listening for air leaks & visual inspection for damage. The utility I work for has us swap gloves monthly with newly tested gloves to reduce the risk of using a damaged glove. The sleeves are tested at least quarterly.

The Salisbury Company's website is www.whsalisbury.com

I purchased this glove kit and I'm mighty pleased with the dexterity I have. They're rated 600 volts and if you can work in winter gloves, you can work in these gloves and protectors.
