Gloves

Post by Colin » Thu Sep 23, 2010 7:47 pm

If you don't want to be a hoary-handed son of toil, get yourself some proper gloves. I used to use rigger gloves when hand-sanding, but they're a bit lumpy and wear out quickly. So I bought myself a pair of these. They have lasted absolutely ages, are light, and not bulky. Plus I now look like Marcel Marceau :thumbup:

I would like to look like Marcel Marceau, bit dear tho'.
I think I might just stick with the worn out dabs that I have. Image

I love the "swooshing" sound deadlines make as they go by.

Does your missus like a bit of rough? :yahoo.gif:
seriously tho, if i'm sanding skirting with 60-grade i don't want to feel my skin abrading away. And these new cut-proof gloves are thin enough to retain a bit of feel

I still think rigger gloves are a good option, touch as old boots and still have the flexibility needed to do the job.
