Just curious how many of you wear gloves and what type when you are wrenching on your vehicles or boats. I spent most of this weekend working on my boat and the fiberglass cuts make my hands feel like they have been cut up by ... well..... lots of little pieces of glass :eek:

I wear Craftsmen goves often when working on the boat, car, motorcycle. They fit well and keep my hand clean and protected.

They also work well for riding the mototrcycle in cooler weather.

I use latex gloves, the dark blue ones, they're thicker than the regular white medical grade. I would use mechanics gloves, however i'm too lazy to go buy a pair :uglyhamme

Mechanics gloves. I have five pair. One in every vehicle and boat and one in a bag of chains and tie-downs stuff like that. These gloves are the best.

I just started using a pair. Not very good for construction style work, etc - but for wrenching, they seem to be good.

Never thought I'd like "wrenching" with gloves on. However, a couple of friends raved about them. Since I've tried them, I seldom do any mechanic work on cars, snowmobiles, boats, etc without them. The thing I really like is your hands stay clean and when the gloves get a bit greasy they've still got great grip.

Just picked up a box of the blue latex gloves recently. It's definitely nice to peel them off when your done & your all clean. Still getting used to them though.
$6 for a box of 100 at Harbor Freight (http://www.harborfreight.com/cpi/ctaf/Displayitem.taf?itemnumber=37051) .... and they go on sale for like $2/box occasionally.

I don't know about what brand you guys are using but the Kobalt gloves from Lowe's have a nice little strip of padding across the knuckle. It comes in handy when you decide to punch the block!

Did you get it in the water? Spring is here. Hit it.

Just had to get 3 stitches in my finger. Cut it on the metal housing of a light fixture I was installing. I've got a pair of those type of gloves but wasn't wearing them. Now I've learned my lesson!
