Good gloves for finishing

Recommended Posts

I originally bought these to try for mechanic work, but have ended up using them any time I want a nitrile glove.  They are many times stronger than the ordinary blue ones, and even "mechanicing", I have never torn one.   i'm sure others are as good, but these work so good that I'm sticking with them.

I've got a box of gloves like those that have a thin fabric lining.  Can't remember the price but my finish supplier sells them.

These don't have any lining, but there is the slightest texture on the outside.  I forget I have them on after a little while.  They don't seem as tight and uncomfortable as the thinner blue ones.   I hadn't given them much thought before, but a friend was here, borrowing my tools and shop,  putting a new brake line in his truck today, and he just emailed me to ask where I got the gloves, so I had the link in my copy and paste from finding where I bought them off ebay.  He really liked them too.

These are one item I don't mind buying from Harbor Freight:

Tough enough to be reusable over several jobs. Unfortunately, even the XL size is a bit snug on me, and if the temp is over 75*F, they fill with sweat in minutes. Tough, though. Pretty hard to tear unles weakened by solvents hostile to nitrile.

The 6 mil on these must be just right then.  I wear size Large gloves, and these couldn't fit any better, but don't know anything about their other sizes.

I agree with the HF ones being super tight and making you sweat. Because of that I buy the thinner ones which means I'm not getting the protection I should be getting out of the gloves. I may have to purchase a box of these that Tom recommended.
