Do you guys wear work gloves?
I'm not talking about Insulated Gauntlets,
but ordinary Leather Rigger type gloves?.
About 2 years ago, I got a HUGE splinter lodged in my hand on a building site, long story short, it got infected, etc.
Since then, I don't work without them and to a certain extent, I find that I can work a bit faster, because I'm not always worrying about injuring my fingers and hands.
What do you guys reckon?. [Linked Image]

Trumpy,
I agree. 30 years ago, no employer provided gloves (or hardhats usually, nor safety glasses, nor masks of any type) and we considered it.......not manly.. to wear such things. I have since made friends with the gloves and hard hat, and will rarely work without at least the gloves.

Gidday George,
One thing I really hate working with over here is, Corrugated Iron roofing sheets, they've got absolutely no friends at all and give a real nasty cut too, if you are unfortunate enough to slip with a piece!.
There's nothing like getting a few stitches in your hand, to wake you up!

Haven't used these myself, but they look like they might come in handy when handling the corrugated metal:

Brown Jerseys for day to day protection from minor scrapes and cold- cheap and easy to replace, also readily available at any convenience store.

Brown Jerseys in Leather Gloves for rougher treatment... i.e. Digging, handling big pipe, etc.

Would like to try the Mechanix gloves ...

As long as I don't have to work with tiny parts yes. The only reason for me to work without gloves is when I need absolutely free movement of my fingers. Also comes nice against blisters from chiseling. For nailing I only wear a right-hand glove, the left hand has to get the nails out of the pack.

ThinkGood,
With names like "Junk-yard Dog" and "Guard-Dog", they must be the toughest gloves in the land!.
I know a postie, that could do with a pair of them Junk-yards. [Linked Image]

Yeah,mate!.
If you can cut your hand with that on,
you might as well pack up and go home. [Linked Image]

I am spoiled, Virgil. My hubby got me a pair of the Mechanix gloves for my birthday or Christmas and they're neat. No more busted knuckles. Of course I guess now I should see if they actually help if I WORK instead of just trying them out while I PLAY in 'his' garage. [Linked Image]
